Stavros Niarchos Foundation Studio at Playwrights Horizons
416 W 42nd Street
In the summer of 1964, civil rights workers from New York City join forces with grassroots activists in Meridian, Mississippi. Freedom Summer follows their crusade for equality as they navigate racism, corruption, and violence in the Jim Crow south. As the quest for progress begins to take its toll on the group, they’re forced to reckon with what it means to be an activist and the price one pays to rewrite history.
