Letters From the Field
In the summer of 1964 close to a thousand volunteers came to Mississippi in support of the Movement. Under the umbrella organization of COFO (Council of Federated Organizations) they worked on projects across the state. Led by SNCC and CORE field secretaries, they helped African-Americans try to register to vote, they taught in Freedom Schools, participated in community organizing, and endured the danger and hardship of civil rights work in the deep South.
Most but certainly not all were college
students or recent grads.
If you were a volunteer, send us your story for posting here. You can email it to: email@example.com.
