Freedom Summer is a new mass meeting event based on the 1964 Mississippi Summer Project when nearly 1,000 college students went to Mississippi to help African Americans to secure their voting rights.
This new play explores the tensions within the project and the challenges faced by the staff and volunteers as they adjust to life in Mississippi during the long, hot summer of 1964 when lives were changed, a state was transformed, churches were burned and three civil rights workers named James Cheney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner were murdered.
Freedom Summer is the latest in a series of dramatic works about the civil rights movement created by Playwright Alan Marshall. He and his fellow artists in the Civil Rights Arts Project are committed to dramatizing the civil rights movement era from 1954 - 1968.
SATURDAY, JULY 19 AT 1:00 P.M.
