Production of a two-hour documentary film and multiplatform project on Freedom Summer (1964), the historic Mississippi voter registration and education effort.

This is a request to the National Endowment for the Humanities for a production grant to support an ambitious multi-platform project on Freedom Summer, the historic voter registration and education effort that brought hundreds of volunteers to segregated Mississippi during the violent summer of 1964. The centerpiece of the project is a special two-hour film presentation of AMERICAN EXPERIENCE produced by noted filmmaker Stanley Nelson, with a national PBS broadcast scheduled to coincide with Freedom Summer's fiftieth anniversary in 2014.
