Anniversary of the Freedom Schools, free schools for African-Americans living in the South during the height of the Civil Rights movement. Conceived first by Charles Cobb, an activist with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, the schools were launched in 1964, as part of the Freedom Summer. By the end of the summer, more than 40 schools had been opened, serving over 2,500 students. Through critical inquiry and civic engagement, the Freedom Schools inspired a generation of students to take action for voting rights, civil rights, and justice.

Global Exchange will bring Charlie Cobb, visionary

of the Freedom Schools; Bernice Johnson Reagon, founder of the Freedom Singers and cultural historian; and Phillip Agnew of the Dream Defenders, an organization committed to training and organizing youth students in nonviolent resistance. These powerful leaders will speak to their activism for civil rights, their challenges, courage and success in changing history, their current work for justice, and how Freedom Schools offer a relevant organizing model for radical social change today.

  • People’s Choice Award – The Cuban Five

Five Cuban agents who were working in Miami, FL, in the 1990s to infiltrate groups openly plotting attacks Cuban civilians, the Cuban Five were arrested following lengthy surveillance by the FBI. The situation surrounding the case of the Cuban Five should be understood as a microcosm for relations between the United States and Cuba at that time, and into the present day. Their capture, detention, and sentencing has been widely criticized, including the call for their release by eight international Nobel Prize winners and Amnesty International.
