The Formation of Freedom Summer

cal-bobmoses
Cal Harris, Duluth community member: I had the honor to play the role of Bob Moses. As a leader, Bob Moses became one of the most influential black leaders of the southern civil rights struggle. Moses developed the idea for the 1964 Mississippi Freedom Summer Project, which recruited northern college students to join Mississippi blacks  to conduct voter registration drives.  I can’t wait to share the knowledge and wisdom I have gained.
