Neshoba: The Price of Freedom

April 3, 7:00 PM

Free

In 1964 three civil rights activists go missing in Mississippi. The bodies of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner are found months later, and the three Klansman accused of murdering them are put on trial. All three are found not guilty, including Edgar Ray Killen who openly flaunts his involvement in the killings for years after the trial. Interviews with local community members and the victim’s families highlight the ongoing effort to bring Killen to trial a second time.
