Freedom Summary. The book begins with a brief overview of the Berglund family, told from the non-specific perspective of their neighbors. Well, no, really it begins by mentioning that an article has recently appeared in the New York Times – a surprisingly unflattering article about one Walter Berglund. It's strange, because the article portrays Walter as a bad guy doing shady things .   This summer we commemorate the Freedom Summer participants who faced death — and in some cases were murdered — for trying to transform the racial landscape of America. This week marks the 50th.
