National Youth Summit on Freedom Summer

Join us on February 5 at the Freedom Center to be a part of this National Youth Summit where students across the country will join together for a virtual National Youth Summit on Freedom Summer and civic engagement. Civil rights activists and Freedom School internship participants will participate in a panel discussion about the 1964 youth-led effort to end the political disenfranchisement of African Americans in the Deep South, and discuss the role of young people in shaping America's past and future. A live video link between the National Youth Summit panel and regional Town Hall sites will enable young people from across the country to participate in the Summit via webcast, allowing them to submit questions for the panel through webchat email, Facebook, and Twitter. Participating students will be encouraged to think of themselves as makers of history and asked to consider their ability to be active and engaged citzens. Space is limited. For more information or to RSVP call 513.333.7737.
