WORKSHOP | SAGAMORE HILL
SUMMARY OF DISCUSSION
In 1964 “freedom schools” were developed as part of the freedom summer civil rights project. The purpose of that effort was to educate and engage volunteers in a massive voter registration effort. At its height, over 3000 African American students attended freedom schools during the summer of 1964. Throughout the sixties the curriculum was student-centered and culturally relevant. Fortunately, fifty years later, freedom schools still exist throughout the United States. Today freedom schools are supported and sustained by the children’s defense fund. One of the most successful freedom schools is run by the north east area neighborhood development corporation (nead). Nead’s executive director, George Moses, will be joined by a number of “servant leaders” in this informative and inspiring workshop. When you leave this workshop you’ll be convinced that there’s only one way to move a community forward and that way is “the freedom school way”.
