Freedom Summer was one of the boldest attempts at interracial movement organizing in American history. It was in a number of ways successful, but nevertheless faced challenges both from external and internal sources. Having reviewed the documents, identify these challenges. What barriers â€“ internal/external, local/national â€“ made movement building difficult? How did COFO/SNCC work to overcome them?
You should draw on specific evidence from the documents when building your argument. This means quotes where necessary, but do not simply provide block quotes and expect the reader to come to a conclusion. Build your own argument and use the evidence to support it. All quotes need to be cited. For this assignment, you can simply put the page number from which the evidence comes in parentheses.
