QuotationReading Letters from Mississippi - the SNCC [Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee] book [edited by Elizabeth Sutherland Martinez, 1965] about the 1964 Freedom project. Very good, very moving, it leaves you a little hopeless - sense of a transitional style in the Civil Rights movement - realization that it ccomplished so little - yet was a great thing, especially for the white students and intellectuals who were in it. They profited most (and three were killed, of course).
