About the 1969 Freedom Seder
Freedom Seder 1969

On the first anniversary of the death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the third night of Passover, the Jewish holiday that commemorates the story of the Israelites’ exodus from Egypt, this ancient Jewish story of liberation was intertwined with a current struggle for liberation for the first time: Black America’s fight for equal rights, at what is now known as the original Freedom Seder. This tradition has continued. Experience a piece of history and help to create the next chapter.
