COFO of Neshoba County

The COFO office was located on Carver Avenue. COFO was a coordinating body for civil rights movement efforts in Mississippi during the Freedom Summer. The Neshoba office was housed in a building originally owned by Calloway Cole of Longdale and later by Amos McClelland who also owned a cafe across the street. A large COFO sign visibly marked the building with black and white hand linked together. Today, this sign is on display in the Old Capital Museum in Jackson, Mississippi.
