Freedom Movement Speakers

List of Available Speakers

For schools, churches, organizations and civic groups

Freedom Movement Speakers:

Our List of Available Speakers provides names, background, and contact information for former civil rights workers active in the Southern Freedom Movement of the 1960s who have made themselves available to speak remotely via Zoom or to answer student questions by email. Our speakers were staff and volunteers for SNCC, CORE, SCLC, NAACP, SCEF, Delta Ministry, and similar groups on the ground in the South during the height of the struggle.

How we work:

Individual students with questions about the Freedom Movement should select one or two veterans from the List and email them directly using the contact information provided.

For group engagements, we work with teachers & event organizers to present flexible, interactive, experience-based activities. Although we're old we're still flexible! For assistance, please contact our Speaking Coordinator, or contact individual veterans from the List.
