The Crusader. July 12, 1963
The Crusader was the official publication of Hosea Williams’ Chatham County Crusade for Voters (CCCV). Launched in 1960, the movement functioned principally as a voter registration campaign and worked to galvanize working-class African American residents of Savannah. The Crusader kept its readers abreast of the political activities of the CCCV and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). Williams left Savannah for Atlanta in the fall of 1964 and as a result, the CCCV eventually discontinued their activities, including the distribution of the Crusader.
