        Freedom Summer: Black Leaders, White Allies

        Over 700 mostly white college students from the North answered the call for volunteers issued by the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). When they arrived for a week of orientation given by the mostly black SNCC organizers, racial and class tensions surfaced. In this video from American Experience: “Freedom Summer,” learn how the two groups confronted the issues that divided them and resolved to work together. This resource is part of the American Experience Collection.
