Freedom Now: The Civil Rights Movement in Mississippi App for iPad

'Students trace the history of the black freedom struggle from Reconstruction through the 1960s. Readings and activities focus on the grassroots movement to achieve civil rights for African Americans. Students listen to leaders in the movement talk about their experiences. In a central activity students recreate the 1964 Democratic National Convention, at which African American delegates from the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party challenged the legitimacy of the all-white Mississippi Democratic Party. Students explore the accomplishments of the movement as well as the challenges that still remain. 
Teacher Resource Book with lesson plans to accompany this student text is available from the Choices Program at www.choices.edu/ebooks.'
