The young people who took part in Freedom Summer and the Freedom Rides took brave and decided actions to dismantle the structures of discrimination through nonviolence. Join Facing History and Ourselves' educators in conversation with activist Chude Allen, historian Kathy Emery, and Oakland USD teachers to explore innovative ways to teach this powerful and inspiring history. This discussion will help teachers and students to consider the relationship between the political context in which their commitment took place, the stories and motivations of those who became freedom movement activists and implications for today. This webinar is offered through a collaboration with the Educating for Democracy in the Digital Age initiative.
