Remembering 'Freedom Summer'

Friday, 21 August

In the summer of 1964, hundreds of student volunteers — most were white and from the North — spent weeks registering African Americans to vote in Mississippi. We hear from Stanley Nelson, director of the 2014 documentary 'Freedom Summer,' and also Charles Cobb, an organizer who was interviewed for the film.

Justin Chang reviews 'Tesla,' starring Ethan Hawke.
