From the Randall (Herbert) Freedom Summer Photographs. A large group of people enjoy refreshments outside the Palmers Crossing Community Center in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, at the party celebrating the Center's opening on July 18, 1964. Volunteer Phyllis Cunningham, State Director of the Freedom Summer Health Clinics, stands left of center in a white flower print dress with three little girls. Hattiesburg resident Vassie Patton, wearing glasses and sitting against the building, is handed a cup by a boy. Freedom School student Shirley Anderson, with her back to the camera, is the third person from the right sitting on the back row of chairs. Her friend, Freedom School student Jimmella Stokes, is sitting two chairs to the right.
