"This book illuminates one of the lesser known accomplishments of the 1964 Mississippi Freedom Summer Project. The establishment of some 37 Freedom Schools in 20 communities enabled hundreds of young black students to learn their history and legacy and understand activism as a road to social change. The author, one of the teachers in a Hattiesburg, Miss Freedom School, tells the story first-hand and enlightens us on what is still missing from our public education curriculum in and beyond Mississippi." - Constance Curry, author, activist
