what did she do
During her life time she did very important things in her life. One thing she did was ran the freedom Summer . She also worked to remove segregation from the democratic party of Mississippi. She started something called the "pig bank". She also started a program called the FFC (freedom farm cooperative) where she got African American farmers land so they didn't have to share crop.
How did she do it
She went to the NSCC and the SCLC so that she could help African American volunteer to vote. She accomplished the pig bank by giving free pigs to African Americans farmers that needed live stock.
Why did she do it
One reason she did it is when she was little, her family were share cropers, and when her family got out of debt their land owner poisoned their live stock, and they had to pay for new live stock and were back in debt.
When she did a speech it went all across America and it encouraged many African Americans to stand up to segregation. She also taught African Americans how to read and right, this gave many people the ability to pass vote exams.
When she started standing up to segregation she was fired from her job. One time she was in a bus and was arrested for siting in the white section. When she was bring African Americans to vote three were killed on the way.
