Crystal R. Sanders, "A Chance for Change: Head Start and Mississippi's Black Freedom Struggle"

Crystal R. Sanders will be at The Regulator Bookshop to discuss her new book, "A Chance for Change: Head Start and Mississippi's Black Freedom Struggle"

In this innovative study, Crystal Sanders explores how working-class black women, in collaboration with the federal government, created the Child Development Group of Mississippi (CDGM) in 1965, a Head Start program that not only gave poor black children access to early childhood education but also provided black women with greater opportunities for political activism during a crucial time in the unfolding of the civil rights movement.
