CLE-Mississippi Cold Case

Special MLK Day Video CLE

One of the more disturbing moments in the civil rights struggle in the South came on July 12, 1964 during the search for civil rights workers James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Mickey Schwerner in Mississippi. When the brutalized corpse of a man was discovered in an offshoot of the Mississippi River, there was early conjecture that it was one of the civil rights workers. The next day the river yielded another body, also brutalized. Then came the shock: The bodies were two altogether different men, both black, who had been missing since early May in Meadville, Mississippi. With that news came the awful realization that a search of any river or swamp in South Mississippi might reveal the vile extremes to which the Ku Klux Klan would go to preserve white supremacy.  DePaul Law faculty, staff and students are welcomed to attend.
