In 1964, The Freedom Summer project was designed to draw the nation's attention to the violent oppression experienced by Mississippi blacks who attempted to exercise their constitutional rights, developing a grassroots freedom movement that could be sustained long after student activists left Mississippi. Among those student activists was our very own Dr. Bob Fullilove.
As the nation embarks upon the election season and culminates Black History Month, join Dr. Bob Fullilove for an intimate account of his experience, offering a reflection of his time as a student activist during this pivotal moment in U.S. history and its impact on his work as a public health practitioner.
Reception to follow a short Q&A session. Light refreshments will be served. As space is limited, please RSVP here: https://orgsync.com/70236/events/1401250/occurrences/3177987.
