On This Day in 1964

Zinn Education Project:

One June 21, 1964, James Chaney, Michael Schwerner, and Andrew Goodman were murdered by the KKK with help from the deputy sheriff near Philadelphia in Neshoba County, Miss. While their case received national attention, there were many more people murdered while seeking basic democratic and human rights.
