Images of the civil rights movement traveled north and into Rick Tuttle's mind as a student at Wesleyan University, and then traveled west to find him as a graduate student at UCLA. Tuttle himself eventually traveled South to join SNCC's operation in Mississippi. He worked through astonishing violence and police brutality, and was rushed out of Mississippi when word came that Medgar Evers's assassin, Byron De La Beckwith, had plans to kill him. Tuttle continued his activism in Georgia, shifting his attention from voter registration to desegregation of public facilities. Arrested in Savannah, Tuttle and his fellow prisoners ran a mock Freedom School, teaching inmates civics, chemistry, and math. This interview offers a remarkable look into the resilience of one civil rights worker and of the movement as a whole.
