Freedom Summer Play

Saturday, October 11.

2:30 pm in the Everyday Freedom Heroes gallery.

Free with general admission.

This historical play is brought to life by members of the Freedom Center's Youth Docent program and tells the remarkable story of Freedom Summer -- highlighting those individuals who risked their lives to register people to vote in Mississippi during the summer of 1964. The play was created in partnership with Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.

You don't even find them in every history book. They're everyday people, like you and me, from every corner of the globe who choose to demand freedom.

Modern Abolition

Just as abolitionists of the 18th and 19th centuries created movements demanding the end to the transatlantic slave trade and the abolishment of chattel slavery in the United States, the persistence of modern forms of slavery around the world today calls for a new, global network of abolitionists.
