What: America’s Freedom Sailor is a non-profit organization looking to expand universal accessibility to the seas. The organization is going to build the world’s first universally accessible tall ship. America’s Freedom Sailor is working with naval architects from The University of New Orleans and The Center for Inclusive Design and Environmental Access based in Buffalo, New York.
Film by: UNO student and filmmaker Nathan Tucker
Editor’s Note: NolaVie partners with students of UNO professor László Zsolt Fülöp, pairing them with artists, non-profits, environmental groups, and cultural entities to facilitate a live curriculum that results in a short documentary. In this short doc, Nathan Tucker talks with members of the America’s Freedom Sailor to find the mission and purpose of the non-profit.
