Join us on two consecutive Sundays as we watch and discuss the documentary Freedom Summer.

Fifty years ago this summer, over 10 memorable weeks known as Freedom Summer, more than 700 student volunteers from around the country joined organizers in the south for a historic effort to shatter the foundations of white supremacy. Join us as we reflect on the stories and the community organizing that changed our nation.
