- Median of School Completed by Adults in 1960 per MS County: Whites, Non-Whites

- White Women Supporters
When the summer was over, the WIMS staff put together a report that recorded their major activities, accomplishments, and findings. The report talked about the reaction of those white women who were asked to provide housing for the white WIMS women. It was no small task for white women to host northern visitors, even white visitors. The white women of Mississippi faced possible retribution: being ostracized by their friends; being punished by their husbands; and worst of all - being responsible for their husbands losing their jobs.
