Freedom Now!: An Archival Project of Tougaloo College and Brown University
I write to let you know about a new web site that includes more than 200 documents from the archives of Tougaloo College and Brown University chosen by students and faculty from both institutions. Freedom Now! focuses on the struggle for civil rights in Mississippi and its legacy. This website continues the relationship between Brown and Tougaloo, a relationship that began as part of the Mississippi Freedom Movement.
The documents on this site fall into two related categories: the Mississippi Freedom Movement, in which Tougaloo played a pivotal role, and the Brown-Tougaloo Cooperative Exchange, which grew out of that activism and continues today. The heart of the site is a searchable database which links to electronic scans of the documents themselves. The site also contains lesson plans for teachers who want to use the documents in class, essays written by college students about clusters of documents, and overview essays by faculty members.
