Title

Stan Shaw Collection Finding Aid

Description

Stan Shaw was Chairman of the Student Help Project at Queens College from January 1963 through January 1964. The Student Help Project organized Queens College students to provide free tutoring services to schoolchildren in South Jamaica, Queens (circa 1962-1968) and in Prince Edward County, Virginia (summer of 1963). In South Jamaica, the volunteers assisted children who were below grade level. In Prince Edward County they tutored African American children who had been denied formal schooling since 1959, when the County shut down their public schools rather than enforce court ordered desegregation.
