TEACH (in production)

Offers a look into the classrooms of the Freedom Schools and Citizenship Schools of the 1950s and 60s. Guided by visions of a better nation, teachers, students and activists understood that education was key to citizenship. In the face of violence and segregation, the grassroots schools became a space to dream something different. Through the intimate stories of teachers and students, we see the fundamental connection between education and racial justice, and what hope and change look like in action.
