Three Of The Freedom Riders From Mississippi Freedom Summer Coming to The Bronx Documentary Center

Tomorrow, Saturday July 12th at 8PM, the Bronx Documentary Center will be screening ‘Freedom Summer’ where “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.”
Join the Bronx Documentary in this unprecedented an historic event and the panel discussion which will follow the screening.
Dorothy M. Zellner, who worked closely with Julian Bond as a staff member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee from 1962 to 1967, will be in attendance as well as other former Freedom Summer volunteers.
