This is a three day conference, “Come, Let Us Build a New World Together: Fifty Years after the Mississippi Summer Project” to be held during Black History Month, February 25-27, 2016. This conference will focus on the history of the fight for voting rights, the history and role of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) in that fight, lessons from the Mississippi Summer Project, voter registration organizing, Freedom Schools, the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party, ramifications of the movement, from civil rights to Black Power and connections with contemporary struggles around education and violence in and against “endangered communities”. It is designed to connect the past with the current wave of youth activism and the socio-economic crises of “endangered communities.” This conference will be dedicated to the life and legacy of the late Julian Bond.
