At the height of the Civil Rights Movement, Andrew Goodman joined the 1964 Freedom Summer to register African Americans to vote.  On his first day in Mississippi, Andrew and two other civil rights workers, James Chaney and Michael Schwerner, were murdered by the Ku Klux Klan. 

Today, Andrew’s brother David Goodman, is the president of The Andrew Goodman Foundation whose mission is to empower the next generation to initiate and sustain creative and effective social action.

This Sunday, the foundation will host its Hidden Heroes Awards honoring mid and advanced career humanitarians. One of this year’s recipients is Sharon Content, the founder and president of Children of Promise NYC, a nonpofit organization dedicated to supporting and empowering the children of incarcerated parents.

I speak with David and Sharon about the impact of Andrew Goodman's legacy, the importance of intergenerational coalitions and what it takes to sustain effective social justice efforts today.
