Description: 

Screening & discussion of American Experience: Freedom Summer. During the summer of 1964, the nation’s eyes were riveted on Mississippi. Over 10 memorable weeks known as Freedom Summer, more than 700 student volunteers joined with organizers and local African Americans in an historic effort to shatter the foundations of white supremacy in the nation’s most segregated state. Working together, they canvassed for voter registration, created Freedom Schools, and established the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party, with the goal of challenging the segregationist state Democratic Party at the national convention in Atlantic City. The campaign was marked by sustained and deadly violence, including the notorious murders of three civil rights workers, countless beatings, the burning of 35 churches and the bombing of 70 homes and Freedom Houses. Panelists:  Penny Patch, Chris Williams and Gail Falk - All were involved with Freedom Summer

We hope you can plan to join us in October 2015 as Vermont PBS hosts a once-in-a-lifetime excursion to southern Italy and Sicily… with a food-focused travel companion sure to make the experience even more memorable.

We’ll take in the sights and sounds of Sicily, Pompeii, Alberobello, the Amalfi Coast and so much more. And with Executive Chef Shawn Calley in attendance, we’ll also savor the flavors of this exquisite region – with an expert hand to guide us. Two-time Top Chef Award winner and executive chef at The Essex Resort & Spa, Calley’s passion is locally sourced, European-inspired food… a most fitting background to help inform our travels.

A benefit for Vermont PBS, this intimate group excursion is limited to just 24 people, which will allow you the time and the latitude to steep yourself in the culture, history and extraordinary beauty of southern Italy… and to take advantage of culinary delights at every turn! The 12-day excursion, being organized by Collette Travel, departs Oct. 8, 2015, with reservation deadline coming in April. It promises to be a visual and sensory experience you’ll long remember.

Plan to join us Tuesday, Jan. 27 at 3:30 pm, for an informational meeting – and get your questions answered. Meeting will be held at The Essex Resort & Spa in Essex, Vt. To reserve a space at the informational meeting, or for more information, please contact George Hauenstein at Vermont PBS:  802-654-3669 ghauenstein@vermontpbs.org.
