The Freedom Summer App (FSApp) is a location-based tour that uses a mobile device and GPS technology to transport you to 1964 to train as a Freedom Summer volunteer … by understanding the struggles of the past, we can reflect on what is at stake in the future. The FSApp project is led by Dr. Ann Elizabeth Armstrong, Associate Professor of Theatre, and the Center for Digital Scholarship (CDS) is a co-principal investigator in this NEH grant. Our next two playtests will be on: September 15: Right after the 1st Freedom Summer Dialog, the playtest will start at 5PM at Thomson Hall on the Western campus; and September 26: Playtest will start at 5PM at Thomson Hall; then we will have a brief project discussion and reception at 6PM in Leonard Theatre in Peabody Hall.

The Freedom Summer App is funded by a National Endowment for the Humanities Digital Humanities Start-Up Grant Award.
