Mae Mallory Papers

 Collection
Identifier: UP000955
Abstract Active in the civil rights movement, Mae Mallory advocated for African-Americans' right to armed self-defense and was closely associated with NAACP member and author of "Negroes with Guns," Robert F. Williams. Ms. Mallory was imprisoned for alleged kidnapping but was later released after the North Carolina Supreme Court determined racial discrimination in the selection of the jury. Ms. Mallory's papers document her imprisonment and reflect her participation in the radical civil rights movement.
