What this blog is about

This blog is about Operation Breadbasket (1962 - 1972). Operation Breadbasket (Breadbasket henceforth) was established in 1962 to fight economic discrimination against African Americans in Atlanta and later became a minor project of the Chicago Freedom Movement. It was synonymous with the emergence of Jesse Jackson as a national civil rights leader. The program was managed by ministers in order to promote economic rights for poor African Americans and later became an economic developing agency to support African American entrepreneurship.
