In 1964, 700 students, the majority of them white, traveled to Mississippi to join with Black activists in the South to register African Americans to vote. They courageously braved intimidation, arrests, death threats, and beatings. Three young people, Mickey Schwerner, Andrew Goodman, and James Chaney – went missing and were later found murdered.
