WE ARE NOT AFRAID -- FREEDOM SUMMER AND THE MISSISSIPPI MURDERS

An illustrated talk commemorating the 50th anniversary of Freedom Summer (also known as the Mississippi Summer Project), a campaign launched in June 1964 to attempt to register as many African American voters as possible in Mississippi, which had historically excluded most from voting.
