Freedom Summer, 2014. 93% rating on IMDB. A PBS documentary. One of the most incendiary and controversial episodes of the Civil Rights Movement is recounted in this documentary. Using archival footage, director Stanley Nelson tells the story of the Freedom Summer of 1964, when more than 700 out-of-state volunteers descended on Mississippi to register black voters. They met with fierce resistance from local law enforcement and the Ku Klux Klan, who resorted to intimidation, assault and murder to try to scare off the outsiders.
Each day (or in a weekly digest form), they offer an overview on current events and apply an anti-racism lens. Learn how practices embedded in our politics, criminal justice system, and workplaces enforce systemic oppression – and what you can do about it.
Each email will include:
An urgent and tactical action you can take to practice anti-racism each day
Insights on the systemic and interpersonal practices that uphold white supremacy and systems of oppression
Clear and tangible resources to support your education
Then on Saturdays they have a weekly “study hall” where they answer questions submitted in response to the daily emails.
