Murder In Mississippi
How long is the Mississippi River? How many counties does it run through? How many bubbles in a bar of soap? don't know that answers? Sorry, you can't vote in 1964 Mississippi. Especially if you're African American.
From executive Producer David L Wolper (Roots) comes a powerful tale of one of the touchstone events of the Civil Rights era: the murder of three voting rights activists. The story focuses on two of the young men: James Chaney (Blair Underwood) and Mickey Schwermer (Tom Hulce), who learn to put aside their differences to make a difference. Bigotry and injustice are the targets of their activism. But the men in turn become targets of those who would rather kill than change. History must not forget Murder In Mississippi.
