Family Freedom Summer

 

Family Freedom Summer is a learning opportunity that allows growth and connection by strengthening family and community ties. We invite fellow community members to attend and to teach workshops. Our goal is to connect and share the diverse set of skills and knowledge inherent in our community for the betterment of all families in Lincoln Park and the greater Duluth area.

 

Historical Inspiration

Family Freedom Summer is inspired by the Freedom Schools that took place in Mississippi during the Civil Rights Movement. Freedom Summer as a movement created stronger communities centered around Black excellence.  

 

Workshops

Our workshops include a range of opportunities from skill-based demonstrations to discussion-based seminars. Demonstrations can include anything from baking a cake to wood-working and more. Discussions include topics ranging from institutional racism to community specific issues. Workshops offer a variety of learning opportunities for your entire family.

 

Freedom Fridays

In addition to workshops we also invite everyone to come together on Friday nights to share a meal and spend time continuing to grow and bond as a community.

 

This program begins in April and continues through historic Juneteenth.
