Tracy Sugarman was an American illustrator known for chronicling momentous events in American History, from D-Day to the Civil Rights struggle. In 1964, he documented the people and projects of Mississippi's Freedom Summer. At age 41, he was older than many of the college-age volunteers and Civil Rights workers. Sugarman would later write two books of his experiences, The Stranger at the Gates (1966) and We Had Sneakers, They Had Guns (2009). The quotes cited here are Sugarman's unless otherwise noted.
