Finding a Political Voice

Black Political Task Force "Project 1,000" flyer (ca. 1980) and "Community Slate" letter (1979)

Believing that grass-roots activism was only a start, though a powerful one, groups like the Black Political Task Force also worked to register African American voters and support African American political candidates on the state and local level who could begin to effect change at home. Their "Project 1,000" effort aimed to register at least 1000 new African American voters for the 1980 election. From the Roxbury Multi-Service Center records.
