Stranger at the Gates
by Tracy Sugarman

About During the summer of 1964, over one thousand people went to Mississippi as part of a state wide effort to register African-American voters and to establish teaching centers that became known as "Freedom Schools."

Motivated by a strong sense of social justice, Tracy Sugarman, an artist and commercial illustrator, set out to document the people and events of what turned out to be an historic period.
Sugarman describes and beautifully illustrates the living conditions, day-to-day activities, and the relationships that developed between the host families and the volunteers.
This book is an essential source of information about Freedom Summer and the people who helped to change America for the better.
