Think back to 50 years ago this summer in Mississippi. It was a pivotal time in history and veteran director and filmmaker Stanley Nelson has captured it in his new film “Freedom Summer.” Nelson also did the “Freedom Riders” documentary. His new film will be screening on the 13th at Facets Multimedia. Director Stanley Nelson joins us to talk about his new film. Photo Courtesy of Flickr/ARCHIVESFOUNDATION
