Reunion: Summer of ’64 Freedom Rides Remembered

Reblogged today Sunday August 16th, 2015 in memory of Julian Bond.


The Summer of ’64, also known as the Freedom Summer was a campaign to register voters, principally people of color and to promote and support their right-to-vote in Mississippi, in the summer of 1964. The project was a collaborative effort unifying community and civil rights leaders, students, and people of faith. Pictured are (l-r) The mother of slain CORE community voting organizer Andrew Goodman with a Mississippi community activist, youth participating in the day of remembrance and reunion, USC Academic, writer, and Mississippi civil rights Dr. Endesha Ida Mae Holland, and noted Professor, Writer and American Civil Rights Leader  Julian Bond. 
All photos (exception of Dr. Holland) were taken in Jackson Mississippi, August 1994 published in the Washington Post.
