Freedom Summer Documentary Screening, a PBS American Experience Production     Moderator: TBA

Over 10 memorable weeks in 1964 known as Freedom Summer, more than 700 student volunteers from around the country joined organizers and local African Americans in a historic effort to shatter the foundations of white supremacy in what was one of the nation’s most viciously racist, segregated states.

Freedom Summer won the Best Documentary award at 2014 Pan African Film Festival. The film had its U.S. television premiere at PBS on June 24, 2014.

This screening and discussion is part of the Black History Month Film Series, a collaboration of the Brown University Center for the Study of Slavery & Justice and the Providence Public Library.

Parking is available at the Providence Hilton Parking Garage: $3/3 hours. 

Bring ticket for stamping at the Library.
