The sixth chapter examines the legacy of the Freedom Schools by following the students and teachers after the 1960s and the influence of the schools on contemporary policy and educational discourse. The students and teachers who participated in the Freedom Schools were often politicized and carried forth the lessons they had learned in their careers in education, local politics, and community organizing.
