  • Our Memorial Day special TALC session on the "The 1964 Mississippi Freedom Summer Project" will be hosted by DR. GWENDOLYN ZOHARAH SIMMONS. Dr. Simmons was involved with the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), becoming active during the 1960s Sit-In Movement as a student at Spelman College in Atlanta, GA where she studied on a full academic scholarship from 1962 to 1964. It was during this time that she met Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., visited his church and marched with him in several desegregation demonstrations in Atlanta. This involvement led to her leaving college to work full time with SNCC in the summer of 1964 as a volunteer in the historic 1964 Mississippi Freedom Summer Project. She spent a total of 18 months in Mississippi beginning that summer, serving as Project Director in Laurel, Mississippi and an additional two years working full-time on voter registration and desegregation activities in Alabama and Atlanta during the 60s.
