1/30 Mohawk Valley Freedom School


For those unfamiliar with the Freedom School, it came out of a long tradition of education projects rooted in social justice. They were very popular in the South during the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s and also have popped up in places like Akwesasne (Mohawk Nation) north of us. In Utica, the "school" existed for some time at Cornerstone Community Church. People from all backgrounds showed films, and taught classes on subjects ranging from Palestinian freedom, to immigrant justice, philosophy, the Black Freedom Movement, African anticolonial movements, peace and justice, union organizing, prison reform and prison abolition, indigenous rights, etc. A space was created for students, both young and old, to discuss issues and reflect on them in an environment that was very supportive.
