Isthmus on WORT: Freedom Summer in Madison

In 1964, pastors protested and picketed. High school students disrupted the state Assembly. University students were jailed throughout the South. A former Badger was murdered and left in a Mississippi mud bank. Discussions over race relations and inequality dominated the discourse.

Isthmus contributor Stu Levitan reported on the civil rights movement's impact on Madison during the Freedom Summer of 1964 in the July 4 issue, and discussed his story with WORT producer Dylan Brogan on the July 3 edition of In Our Backyard.

Listen to the interview.
