Freedom_Summer_1catch of the day fish (2)Cultural institutions across the city are celebrating Black History Month in February. In the midst of its big expansion this week, the Great Blacks in Wax Museum is looking back at the Freedom Summer.

A Wednesday, Feb. 10, panel discussion will talk about youth and student civil rights leaders, which seems a particularly relevant topic given the students in Baltimore and beyond who have been demonstrating against police brutality. It’s part of the North Ave. museum’s theme for the month of February, which challenges the idea that history is shaped only by adults.

Along with the panel discussion, the event will also feature a screening of the PBS documentary Freedom Summer. The American Experience selection looks at the student-led movement that sought to register African American voters in Mississippi.
