Description


In 1964, nearly a thousand volunteers went to Mississippi to work with veteran civil rights organizers and local people on various projects. The summer began with three Ku Klux Klan murders and ended with the Mississippi Freedom Democratic party's challenge to the state's segregationist delegation. This definitive analytical history--well-written and well-researched--tells the dramatic story. Photos.
