- Planet Erstwild - 20130213 - Patti Miller - Gloria Hardiman - Freedom Rising Concert

James Moore talks with two members of the IOWA FREEDOM CHOIR who will be participating in Friday's multimedia presentation at the Sondheim Center celebrating black history and the civil rights movement.

Jason Aviles hails from the Bronx and is actively involved in promoting youth advocacy amd well-being. Samira Abdelrahman came to school from North Carolina. Both are student leaders at MUM. They met "Let Freedom Ring" concert founder Patti Miller at a presentation at the Public Library. They talk about their participation in this weekend's event and the upcoming trip to Mississippi where they'll sing with another choir in Meridian and visit other historic civil rights sites. It is really inspiring to hear them talk about what this journey has meant to them personally.
