For those of you unable to be with us in person, this meeting will be hybrid (live/Zoom). Please join us online at 2:30. A link will be sent the day before.

Because we have limited time and there is so much that Mark will be covering in our session, we ask that you view one of these two documentaries beforehand.

1994's "Freedom On My Mind" is available on Vimeo for a rental fee of $4.99:

The 2014 PBS documentary "Freedom Summer" is available for free here:
