Description:
Jan Phillips, a Louisville activist, was a friend of Carl and Anne Braden and also a SCEF (Southern Conference Educational Fund) board member and staff person, starting in 1972. In this interview, Phillips describes her involvement in the Civil Rights Movement and her impressions of the Bradens. She discusses the divisions that arose within SCEF and the fact that the organization was a proponent of integration in the South, yet its membership was overwhelmingly white. She speaks about the tensions that arose between SCEF and black militant groups and recalls an incident where a Black Panther Party member came to the SCEF office and threatened his wife at gunpoint. Phillips, a Communist Party (CP) member, also discusses the resentment black activist groups had against SCEF as they felt it was too influenced by the CP.
