On Monday, February 18 at 5:30 p.m. in the Fury Lecture Hall, the Dominican College Humanities Council will present Freedom Summer, a play about Mississippi in 1964.
The play tells the story of Bob Moses,who pioneered a voting rights movement in McComb, Mississippi in 1961 and the events leading up to Freedom Summer, in which 1,000 northern college students went to Mississippi to join the effort. Three of the volunteers, James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner, lost their lives but their efforts broke the back of the segregated society.  
The play is written by William Tucker of Piermont with music by Sam Waymon of Nyack.
