Freedom Summer for young people

the savage season that made Mississippi burn and made America a democracy

Chronicles the events of the summer of 1964, when hundreds of college students arrived in Mississippi to register black voters and educated black children. Delves into the murders of three of the volunteers and discusses the FBI's investigation, the discovery of the bodies, and the climax of the summer at the Democratic National Convention in Atlantic City.
