The people involved in Freedom Summer was Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), non-violent student organizations (SNCC), and hundreds of mixed, (mostly) white college students from the North. Of course, people didn't like this idea, so other groups involved in this would be the Ku Klux Klan, police, local and state authorities too. The Mississippi Summer Project was run by COFO or Council of Federated Organization. The most important people that were involved was Robert Moses, which proposed the idea of all this, Dave Dennis, from sit-ins and freedom rides, he joined this, Annie Devine, Fannie Lou Hamer, Mary King, and Julian Bond, which were all involved in some type of group and ended up challenging the white-supremacist delegation.
WHAT KIND OF OBSTACLES DID THEY FACE AND HOW DID THEY DEAL WITH THAT?
But for those who were involved, faced many violence. The KKK or anyone really would kill, beat, rape, fired, tortured, arrested, or even kicked out of their homes to African Americans and if you did register, some African American names would appear on the newspaper and you could be targeted, fired, or your family would be in danger. Some would take the pain and still stand tall to overcome these abuses because they wanted to keep it a non-violence protest. Before they were out into the streets to protest, they were practicing on how to act and what not to do.
The very first day of this, June 21, James Chaney, Michael Shwerner, and Andrew Goodman went missing. After 6 weeks, their bodies were discovered (dead) and found their car all wrecked. - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Syw8DfFzwlI&spfreload=10&scrlybrkr=d606d10d -
WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THE MISSISSIPPI SUMMER PROJECT?
After the Mississippi Summer Project, there was still struggle in segregation and repression throughout the whole south, today in America, anyone and everyone can vote (if over 18 or legal), because the Voting Rights Act of 1965 was passed. It banned literacy tests, expanded the voting rights to hispanics all the way till 1975, and empowered the federal government to oversee voter registration and was against discrimination of minorities in other states.
