Very emotional - in Pearl Cleage fashion, it leaves a lot for you to ponder.

Description

The 2007 Pearl Cleage season concludes with a revival of Bourbon at the Border. This explosive piece follows the lives of two ordinary people who joined hundreds of other Americans for a massive voter registration drive in Mississippi in the summer of 1964. White supremacists, outraged at the challenge to their segregated way of life, responded with violence that left three civil rights workers dead and many wounded. Years later, the couple is still searching for a way back from the personal damage that was done during that long-ago “Freedom Summer.”
