Freedom Now: An archival project of Tougaloo College and Brown University

Freedom Now explores the relationship between northern do-gooders and Mississippi civil rights activists.  According to its authors, "This website continues the relationship between Brown University and Tougaloo College, a relationship that began as part of the Mississippi Freedom Movement.  Freedom Now! contains documents from Tougaloo and Brown's Archives, gathered by students and faculty from both institutions."  The main access to the site is through its search feature.  It also has a section for teachers.  In addition, the section on the Brown-Tougaloo Exchange has essays by students that are based on clusters of primary sources, which are linked to the essays.

A reviewer for the Journal of American History described this site as "user-friendly," "full of interesting, surprising, and thoughtful documents, lesson plans, and cluster essays that high school and college teachers and students will appreciate."  The search feature is easy to use, and the essays are clear and concise, while covering interesting topics such as Medgar Evers or the white Citizens Council.
