West Park is thrilled announce a 50th anniversary commemoration of the Freedom Summer and Goodman, Chaney, and Schwerner, Freedom Summer: The Next Generation, on June 9th at 7 pm. The evening, presented in partnership with The Center at West Park and in cooperation with the Andrew Goodman Foundation, will focus on what we can learn from the summer of 1964 and the communities that nurtured Goodman, Chaney, and Schwerner to guide our struggles for a more inclusive society today. The Rev. Dr. James A. Forbes, Jr. will deliver the keynote address, and Linda Sarsour, Simran Jeet Singh, and Stosh Cotler, will offer responses and reflections. Our friend and local singer-songwriter Jeremy Mage will be curating a series of songs from the Freedom Summer as well.
For more information, please see the poster (above) or get in touch with us at 212.362.4890 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking forward to seeing you on June 9th at 7 pm!
