Training for Freedom

Episode 1 of 1

In 1890, Mississippi had 190,000 registered Black voters. By 1966, that number was reduced to 2,000 due to a complicated voter registration process. TRAINING FOR FREEDOM captures the transformational story of how idealistic college students and Black activist teachers came together at the height of the civil rights movement, in a small Midwestern town, for a two-week training session aimed at teaching Mississippi African Americans how to register to vote.
