HISTORY

Organizers formed Freedom Schools in 1964 during the fight for Black voting rights in Mississippi. It was designed to teach popular and civic education so that Black people could develop the knowledge and skills they needed to be active political organizers, voters, and elected officials.

 

Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) created curriculum that included Black history, civic educations, art, and more, all rooted in the lived experiences of young Black Mississippians.

Freedom Summer paved the way for the 1965 Voting Rights Act and laid the foundation for the electoral-justice and political-organizing efforts in organizing today.
