Description: Interview conducted on 10-21-1999 with Dr. Sandra Adickes (born 1933). In 1963, Dr. Adickes taught African-Americans in freedom school efforts in Prince Edward County, Virginia. In 1964, she was recruited to teach in Mississippi Freedom Summer. Dr. Adickes lobbied, raised funds, solicited book contributions, and recruited teachers. She taught in a freedom school in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, for a six-week session, and she accompanied some of her students in an effort to integrate Hattiesburg's public library. After being refused service at a Kress store because she was with an African-American, she was arrested and charged with vagrancy. Later she sued and won a cash settlement in the U.S. Supreme Court which was dispersed for education to people who had been active in civil rights.
