Reformers to Radicals


University Press of Kentucky

In spite of the fact that Joe Mulloy was not able to remember President Johnson's declaration of a “War on P=verty,” he was unusually attentive and was well aware and even impressed by movements that advocated civil rights. Mulloy witnessed field representative Jack Rivel of the AVs advocating focusing on the needs of school children through a “student oriented program.” Through the Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO) and the Area Development Administration, the federal government found the program to serve as a model for various reform efforts in various areas across the country. However, the younger group of AVs began to veer away from the CSM. The Appalachian Volunteers initiated a summer program in the mountains in 1966 that was able to employ more than twice as many volunteers than the first project.
