"Freedom Summer" (2015)
Over 10 memorable weeks known as Freedom Summer, more than 700 student volunteers joined with organizers and local African Americans in a historic effort to shatter the foundations of white supremacy in one of the nation's most segregated states—even in the face of intimidation, physical violence and death.
The film will be introduced by Jennifer Mason McAward, Director of The Center for Civil and Human Rights. Free, but ticketed event. For tickets, visit performingarts.nd.edu or call 574-631-2800.
The "Campaign Concerns" 2016 election film series is co-sponsored by CCHR, the Debartolo Performing Arts Center, and the Rooney Center for the Study of American Democracy.
