The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories

James Wilkerson and Aaron Hooks interview

Repository: Harris-Stowe State University. Archives and Special Collections

Collection Description (Extant): Mr. Wilkerson and Mr. Hooks were both active in St. Louis C.O.R.E. during the 1960s. They participated in the Jefferson Bank Demonstrations and others. Mr. Wilkerson was arrested when he participated in a nonviolent demonstration in a downtown department store which did not hire African American employees in sales positions. When C.O.R.E. leadership changed in the later 1960s, Mr. Wilkerson left the organization and became active in the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists, and eventually became a member in the CPUSA. One interview of approximately 3 hours length was audiotaped and transcribed.
