Freedom on My Mind

The Story of Freedom Summer

Monday, November 6, 2017 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

A documentary about Freedom Summer, the campaign to end the long political disenfranchisement of African Americans in the Deep South.

The Academy Award nominated FREEDOM ON MY MIND is the first film to chronicle, in depth, the story of Freedom Summer. It vividly tells the complex and compelling history of the Mississippi voter registration struggles of 1961 to 1964: the interracial nature of the campaign, the tensions and conflicts, the fears and hopes. It is the story of youthful idealism and shared vision, of a generation who believed in and fought for the principles of democracy. - clarityfilms.org/freedom.
