Freedom School rings with history and advocacy

Broadview’s summer program has Freedom Summer roots

Lindop School District 92 has launched the “Broadview Freedom School” for the summer with the help of a state grant as the state of Illinois creates the first state-funded Freedom Schools network. 
The six-week summer program began June 1 and is modeled after Freedom Schools, which date back to the 1960s in Mississippi as part of the Freedom Summer civil rights project. The goal today is to educate students about social change.
