Abstract:

"Mississippi, is this America?" focuses on the personal risks faced by ordinary citizens as they assumed responsibility for social change, particularly during the 1962-64 voting rights campaign in Mississippi. The state became a testing ground of constitutional principles as civil rights activists concentrated their energies on the right to vote. White resistance to the sharing of political power clashed with the strong determination of movement leaders to bring Mississippi blacks to the ballot box. In Freedom Summer 1964, tension between white resistance and movement activists climaxed in the tragic murder of three young civil rights workers.

"Bridge to freedom, 1965" showcases the lessons of a decade that are brought to bear in the climactic 1965 Freedom March from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, when thousands joined together to march fifty miles for freedom. During the drive to make voting rights a national issue, strategic and ideological differences began to surface between Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) and the younger activists of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). As white "backlash" and segregationist resistance intensified, President Lyndon B. Johnson promised to further the movement's legislative goals. Then, as the movement began to splinter into factions, the National Voting Rights Act became federal law.
