9/18/14 - Register for Remembering Freedom Summer: Building a Better Future

Remembering Freedom Summer (October 19-21) celebrates the 50th-anniversary of the Summer Project launched in 1964. Civil rights leaders chose Mississippi for Freedom Summer because of its dismal record on black voter registration and under-funded schools for black children. To learn more about Freedom Summer please visit the conference website http://www.aas.msstate.edu/fsc/

In Remembering Freedom Summer, Mississippi State University and African American Studies will bring activists who were involved in the movement as well as scholars who write about it.

Faculty are urged to encourage their students to attend this diversity and inclusion event. Conference planners will have scanners in place for faculty who'll be giving extra credit for student attendance. Please contact Linda to set up your course. If you require special assistance relating to a disability, please contact Linda Miller lmiller@aas.msstate.edu or 662-325-0587.
