FBI documents on CORE from 1960


FBI documents on CORE


This is a collection of FBI documents from 1960 pertaining to CORE. It speaks to the Bureau's increasing concern (as well as that of the general public including a U.S. Congressman) with the possibility of CORE being infiltrated by the Communist Party (CPUSA). Interestingly, the FBI stated it saw no overall evidence that such infiltration was taking place but as later documents will demonstrate, the FBI's investigation of CORE in connection with CPUSA would only increase. Historians have suggested this speaks to the fact that communism was never the issue but race was.

These documents are a result of a Freedom of Information request on CORE in New York City.
