Sunflower County Freedom Project

About This Organization

At the Sunflower County Freedom Project, we believe that education is the seed of freedom. Without a challenging, achievement-oriented education, children in the Mississippi Delta will be as powerless in the future as were illiterate sharecroppers in the twentieth century. We provide after-school and summer school programming to students in grades 7-12. Our programs are rooted in five tenets: academic support, health and wellness training, arts enrichment, educational travel and character development. For every student that has completed our six-year fellowship, 100% of them have gone on to a four-year university of college of their choosing.

    Alarmed by the racist display in the last few days, I decided it is a good time to kick off my own MLK50 observation. I can think of no better way than this small contribution to The Sunflower County Freedom Project. I also want to give a shout out to Kate's dad, Larry Gluckman, who introduced me to your wonderful project.
