520    "In the summer of 1964, as the Civil Rights movement 
       boiled over, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee
       (SNCC) sent more than seven hundred college students to 
       Mississippi to help black Americans already battling for 
       democracy, their dignity and the right to vote. The 
       campaign was called "Freedom Summer." But on the evening 
       after volunteers arrived, three young civil rights workers
       went missing, presumed victims of the Ku Klux Klan. The 
       disappearance focused America's attention on Mississippi. 
       Inthe days and weeks that followed, volunteers and local 
       black activists faced intimidation, threats, and violence 
       from white people who didn't believe African Americans 
       should have the right to vote. As the summer unfolded, 
       volunteers were arrested or beaten. Black churches were 
       burned. More Americans came to Mississippi, including 
       doctors, clergymen, and Martin Luther King. A few 
       frightened volunteers went home, but the rest stayed on in
       Mississippi, teaching in Freedom Schools, registering 
       voters, and living with black people as equals. Freedom 
       Summer brought out the best and the worst in America. The 
       story told within these pages is of everyday people 
       fighting for freedom, a fight that continues today. 
       'Freedom Summer for Young People' is a riveting account of
       a decisive moment in American history, sure to move and 
       inspire readers"--|cProvided by publisher.
