Discussion Questions

  1. What is the father's concern about what Vivian has chosen to do? Knowing what you know about Freedom Summer, do you think her father is justified? Why or why not?
  2. How do you think Vivian understands her father's concern? What is your evidence?
  3. How do you think Vivian's father really feels about her choice? What is your evidence?
  4. If you were a parent of a child going to Mississippi during the summer of 1964, how do you think you would have felt? What actions might you have taken as a result of your feelings?
