Join students from across the country for a virtual National Youth Summit on Freedom Summer and civic engagement, hosted by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. Civil rights activists including Freedom Summer project director Robert “Bob” Moses and students will participate in a panel discussion about the 1964 youth-led effort to end the political disenfranchisement and educational inequality of African Americans in the Deep South, and discuss the role of young people in shaping America’s past and future. The webcast will be hosted from the Old Capitol Museum in Jackson, Mississippi; young people from across the country will participate in the Summit through an online chat. Participating students will be encouraged to think of themselves as makers of history and asked to consider their ability to be active and engaged citizens.
