This poster was salvaged by a vice president of the Students for a Democratic
Society at an abandoned Freedom House in Mississippi. Freedom Houses were
established by the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee to provide
havens for African Americans working to regain their right to vote. Some
Freedom Houses were set up as storefronts with hidden meeting rooms in
back to teach citizenship classes to blacks and help them maneuver through
the Byzantine maze of Mississippi voting regulations.
