Kelly M. Alexander's files
Scope and Contents
The collection contains primarily papers and documentation concerning Kelly M. Alexander, Junior and his work with the NAACP at the local, state, and national levels. As his brother (Alfred L. Alexander) and mother (Margaret Alexander) were also involved in the Civil Rights Movement and the NAACP, there are also papers from them in this collection. There is also a small amount of material from Kelly's grandfather, Zachariah Alexander (who was also involved in the Civil Rights movement) and the Alexander Funeral Home.
In addition to his work with the NAACP, Kelly Alexander was also involved in several other organizations that were concerned with social change, and documentation for them is contained in this collection. These organizations are: International House, Mothers of Murdered Offspring, the NC Civil Liberties Union, the NC Department of Environment, Health and National Resources, the NC Health Planning Commission, the NC League of Municipalities, the NC Manpower Corporation, the NC School Improvement Panel, the NC School Improvement Panel, Save Our State, and the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation.
