In 1964, despite the efforts of local civil rights activists, Mississippi remained virulently committed to segregation, underscored by the systematic exclusion of African Americans from the political process. Robert Moses of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee developed a campaign to bring a thousand volunteers to the state to encourage voter registration, provide education convene a more representative delegation to attend the Democratic National Convention.
