WNC Woman Revisits Mississippi Freedom Summer

This July Fourth Holiday Weekend we recall the men and women who fought for civil and human rights in America.  In the summer of 1964,  Carol Rogoff Hallstrom, a young woman from Brooklyn, New York joined hundreds of other volunteers from across America and traveled to Mississippi to help register Black voters.  In late June, Carol Rogoff Hallstrom returned to Mississippi to mark the 50th Anniverrsary of Mississippi Freedom Summer.  She spoke with David Hurand shortly after her return to her home in Western North Carolina.
