Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
" Randall's stunning photographs bring Freedom Summer alive to a new generation of Americans. Tusa's Introduction sheds new light on the Civil Rights movement in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Together they have produced a work as inspirational as it is instructive." —John Dittmer
Library Journal
As recipient of a photography fellowship, Randall chronicled the freedom movement in Hattiesburg, MS, during the summer of 1964, a dangerous mission for a young black male from New York. Most of his nearly 1800 negatives had never been seen until 1997, when Tusa, archivist at the University of Southern Mississippi, was gathering material on the Civil Rights Movement and Randall donated his collection. Tusa's stirring introduction and the more than 100 black-and-white photographs, culled from Randall's collection, depict the freedom schools, community centers, voter registration efforts, nonviolent volunteers, activists such as Pete Seeger, and much more. Critical to understanding our heritage, both volumes are recommended to all types of libraries. Joan Levin, MLS, Chicago Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
