Freedom Summer (Stanley Nelson, 2014)

Freedom Summer recalls the events of the 1964 Mississippi Freedom Summer, when more than 700 student activists worked together to register African-American voters in violently segregationist Mississippi and shatter the foundations of white supremacy in the nation's most segregated state. Fifty years later, Stanley Nelson's documentary film takes a look back at the epochal campaign.
