Project #95848 - Study Questions for Anne Moody,

Answer four of the questions in short paragraphs (2-4 sentences each).

This selection comes from Anne Moody’s eloquent autobiography, the story of a

young civil rights worker in Mississippi during the early 1960s. Moody joined

the movement led by the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC)

to register blacks to vote in small towns across the impoverished state of

Mississippi. As someone active in the voting rights efforts, Moody faced

constant threats and occasional violence from local whites, including sheriffs,

deputies, local citizens, and the notorious Ku Klux Klan, as well as deep

suspicion from local blacks who feared their involvement with the movement

would jeopardize their meager livelihoods and the safety of their families. After

working for months with no money and limited success, Moody is nearly spent,

physically and emotionally.

CORE stands for the Congress of Racial Equality, another civil rights

organization that championed the cause of blacks in the South.

STUDY QUESTIONS

1. Why did Anne decide to spend the little money she had on the kids

across the street?

2. How does it appear Anne’s involvement with the civil rights movement

has affected her relationship with her family?

3. In your own words, how does the church bombing affect Anne’s views on

4. In your own words, how would you characterize Anne’s opinion of Martin

Luther King and the 1963 March on Washington, during which King

delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech?

5. Why is Anne feeling so unwelcome in Canton after the bombing?
