In 1964, Blacks in America lived without the right to vote. They didn't even have the right to help make decisions in their own communities. This was happening all around the country, but no African-American had it worse than in Mississippi. The white citizens of Mississippi were especially strategic in keeping African-Americans from registering to vote. This crisis in Civil rights brought forth many diverse supporters from around the country. This is how Freedom Summer of 1964 began.
