. . This title examines an important historic event—the civil rights efforts in Mississippi during the summer of 1964, known today as Freedom Summer. Easy-to-read, compelling text explores the work of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) in leading voter registration efforts and improving education in the state. Also examined are the murders of civil rights workers and the hate crimes they faced, considered in the social context of segregation. Features include a table of contents, glossary, selected bibliography, Web sites, source notes, and an index, plus a timeline and essential facts. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards. Essential Library is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
