The second chapter follows seven students across Mississippi as they came of age and observed iterations of the national civil rights movement as they materialized in their hometowns. Students studied and discussed the sit-ins, the Freedom Rides, and other protests that occurred in their home communities while they were growing up, which constituted a form of education that served as an important precursor to the Freedom Schools.

Keywords:   Sit-ins, Freedom Rides, NAACP, SNCC, Jackson, Mississippi, Delta
