year is 1964 and African American children are not allowed to go to school
with other children in Chicken Creek, Mississippi. Many had no school
to go to at all. Teams of young volunteers came to Mississippi to
begin Freedom Schools and teach the children, and interested adults, how
to read and write. The lessons were not limited to basic education.
The children learned about famous African Americans that made great contributions
to society. Find out what these schools were about and what difficulties
they faced in FREEDOM SCHOOL, YES! by Amy Littlesugar.
