FREEDOM NOW CHANT
Hattiesburg, MS
February 1964
Mass Meeting Participants
This chant begins with shouts of "Freedom!" and evolves into a call-and-response chant with part of the congregation shouting "Freedom!" and the rest answering "Now!" Sung immediately after "Freedom Train," and the chant increases in pace until it sounds like a moving train.
