Freedom Summer: American Experience on WETA TV26 & HD

Watch the American Experience episode Freedom Summer  tonight, Tuesday June 24 at 9pm on WETA TV26 & HD. More air times here.

The summer of 1964 is known as Freedom Summer. More than 700 student volunteers joined with organizers and local African Americans in an historic effort to destroy the foundations of white supremacy in the nation’s most segregated state, Mississippi. Working as a unified team, they canvassed for voter registration, created Freedom Schools, and established the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party. Their goal was to challenge the segregationist state Democratic Party at the national convention in Atlantic City. The campaign was marked by constant and deadly violence. This included the notorious murders of three civil rights workers, countless beatings, the burning of 35 churches, and the bombing of 70 homes and Freedom Houses. Learn more about this part of American history tonight at 9pm on WETA TV26 & HD.
