50 years have passed since Freedom Summer, when more than 700 local organizers and students took segregated Mississippi by storm, registering voters, and creating freedom schools. This put a national spotlight on the violent voter suppression facing Black Americans in the deep south and ultimately led to the passage of the Voting Rights Act. Half a century later, voting rights are under attack again. That’s why Move to Amend Charlotte, and the NCAE, in collaboration with Working Films, the NC NAACP, Democracy NC, and many allies are bringing a free screening of the documentary, Freedom Summer to Charlotte as part of the Moral Movies film series.


With the dismantling of voting rights in North Carolina, the themes in this film resonate all too well. After the screening a representatives from Democracy NC will draw the connection between the fight to end voter suppression on screen and the struggle playing out right here and now in North Carolina.


Moral Movies is a four-month series that is showcasing award-winning films in Charlotte and eight other cities across North Carolina. The series is intended to jump start community dialogue on social, economic, and environmental issues relevant to the state.


Working Films, a national nonprofit, nonpartisan organization based in Wilmington, NC is coordinating the statewide Moral Movies film series.
