"Freedom School Discussion; 1964"
Hattiesburg, Mississippi, "The Mecca of the Freedom School World," was home to at least seven Freedom Schools (mostly held in church basements) and more than 650 students. Since local segregated black schools did not teach topics like civics or African-American history, these subjects were important parts of the Freedom School curriculum.
