The Freedom Summer App is a location-based tour that uses GPS technology and a role-playing branching narrative to engage historic events that took place on the site of Western College for Women in 1964. It draws from historic media that was captured in 1964.
ORIENTATION FOR THE MISSISSIPPI FREEDOM PROJECT: AN INTERACTIVE QUEST FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE
This project is funded by a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Digital Humanities Start-Up Grant Award. The project aims to develop a prototype for a location-based game centered on historical events surrounding orientation sessions at Western College for Women in preparation for the Mississippi Summer Project, in which students trained for civil rights activism in Mississippi in June 1964.
