Biography/History

Reformers, Journalists. Carl Braden and his wife Anne, committed social activists, assisted Andrew Wade IV, a black electrician in Louisville, Ky. and his wife, in 1954 in buying a house in an all-white neighborhood of the community of Shively. The Bradens purchased the home and subsequently transferred it to the Wades.

Scope and Content

These materials document attempts to integrate housing in Shively, Kentucky by offering evidence on the bombing of Wade's house (apparently compiled by one of the Bradens from court records), data on the trial on sedition charges in the Jefferson Circuit Court and later on contempt of Congress charges. The materials are useful in documenting the history of an early civil rights movement in Kentucky, the use of sedition charges in civil rights cases, and the use of the investigatory powers by the United States House of Representatives, Committee on Un-American Activities
