        1964: "The Strategy Behind Freedom Summer"

        Learn how a new strategy by the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) brought student volunteers to aid civil rights workers in Mississippi—as well as national attention to the cause—in this video from American Experience: “1964.” Although civil rights workers had been fighting for years to help register black citizens to vote in Mississippi, the arrival of mostly white college students from the North led to greater media coverage and more awareness throughout the country of oppressive conditions in Mississippi and the struggle for equality. This resource is part of the American Experience Collection.
