BOX 4

This box contains many folders of literature used for "political education," where members read academic articles and discussed these topics at regular meetings. There are also several groupings of newspapers produced by organizations SLAM! worked with or Hunter College. There are also some programs and literature for causes SLAM! supported, but these tend to be much more in-depth, such as conference agendas. Additionally, there are a couple folders containing literature and a collection of emails related to the literature or cause the literature discusses. These materials tend to be clearly associated with the 1990's, but there are a few from the early 2000's.
