Title:Mississippi Summer Project - 1964: Report by a student volunteer

From the Zeman (Zoya) Freedom Summer Collection. Zoya Zeman's senior thesis was written after her participation in the Mississippi Freedom Project in the summer of 1964. Putting her work into context, she begins with a description of the background history of Mississippi. Zeman then recounts her entire Freedom Summer experience, beginning with training in Oxford, Ohio. She describes the scope and goals of the Mississippi Freedom Project, and examines the volunteers who participated in the civil rights movement as well as the public's perception of them. Zeman describes her own work and the local harassment she and others endured during their summer in Mississippi. In conclusion, she discusses race relations and some of the results of her summer in Mississippi.
