    A free online collection about the 1964 Mississippi Freedom Summer project at

    Besides thousands of archival documents from COFO, CORE and SNCC and papers from dozens of individual activists, the site includes a downloadable Powerpoint about Freedom Summer and a PDF Sourcebook of key documents for teachers. Although focused on 1964, the online archive also contains many items dating back into the 1950s and forward to the end of the 1960s, so it's useful for general civil rights movement research, too.

    As the 50th anniversary of Freedom Summer approaches, we want teachers, students, historians, librarians, museum curators, the media, and anyone else to use these primary sources for their programming.

    We'll be adding a few thousand more pages in coming months, so please "like" us on Facebook and follow along:
