What is Freedom Summer?
Freedom Summer 1964 is a free digital learning tool that explores key events surrounding the early years of the Civil Rights Movement, the 1964 Mississippi voter registration drive, and the eventual passage of both the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
Students have the opportunity to analyze 20 primary sources depicting images of civil rights events and to evaluate how they might connect to state actions and Congressional legislation. Analysis of a variety of primary sources and supplemental information leads students to identify varying perspectives and predict potential outcomes. Two views, a card deck and a bulletin board, allows students to interact with the materials in multiple formats.
