The Freedom Summer Murder by Don Mitchell is the best complete book that I read on this subject of the brutal murders in Neshoba County, Mississippi , on June 21,1964 of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner three civil right workers . The three had been working on the "Freedom Summer" campaign, attempting to register African Americans to vote.
The author does a great job of documenting the life’s and families of these three men before this tragic night. After reading the book I felt that I personally know these guys. This year is the 50th Anniversary of this tragic event! This book should be a great read for the teenagers in my Book club. Great Read!
