August 4, 1964. Nora starts a new life “passing” as a white woman while her sister, Carrie, travels to the Deep South to register Blacks to vote. The bodies of the three civil rights workers have just been found in Mississippi, leading the sisters to question the price of civil rights, Black identity, and what it means to be free. FREEDOM SUMMER is a historical, but timely piece given the events of this past election year, social justice issues, as well as the events unfolding in the country right now.
Part of Black History Month and the Common Read
