1964 Freedom Summer Project

!FREEDOM SUMMER!

            This project was organized by Bob Moses, organizer of Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), and the Council of Federated Organizations ( COFO). Their goals were to register black voters, build Freedom Schools, establish community centers, and gain support for the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party.
            The participants were trained in Oxford, Ohio. In that summer, three men went missing. Andrew Goodman, James Chaney, and Michael Schwerner were last seen being arrested for a traffic violation. Their bodies would later be discovered buried on a farm. Despite this turmoil, forty-one freedom schools were established, more than 10,000 blacks tried to vote, and about 1,600 blacks were registered to vote.
