This potent documentary re-creates an America most of us are lucky never to have experienced: the apartheid government of the state of Mississippi, circa 1964.

A well-shaped and powerful reminder of a time in recent American history when white supremacy was decisively and courageously undercut.

Hollywood Reporter
veteran filmmaker Stanley Nelson has crafted a searing portrait of those violent, racist times. Intelligently composed and powerfully driven, Freedom Summer is a stirring historical document. It would seem an essential addition for any university library.
