Summer 2018 scholars will be taught using the Children’s Defense Fund literacy curriculum. They will also engage in enrichment activities led by Nashville area video/web professionals and create a live-to-tape video broadcast and podcasts for presentation via Nashville Freedom Schools’ website and Facebook page, featuring firsthand interviews with Civil Rights giants living in Nashville, with scholars’ contributing original scripts, music, poetry, commentary and spoken word.
