Abstract:

Annotation

Sandra Adickes recalls her experiences during 1964, when the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) established Freedom Schools as part of its Freedom Summer campaign in Mississippi. With a curriculum developed by dedicated educators, SNCC workers, and a staff of teachers and student volunteers, the schools provided a learning experience and teaching style that revealed to students who had known only the experience of segregated education what schools should be. The achievements of the students involved in Freedom Summer lifted the expectations of students who followed them and hastened the end of segregated schools in Mississippi.
