Summary
  • Mississippi : is this America? (1962-1964) : Focuses on the right to vote. Tells how the black citizens who had been denied the right to vote stepped forward and demanded a place in the political process. Medgar Evers, Michael Schwerner, Andrew Goodman, James Chaney, and others, died trying to help them. Shows the formation of the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party to challenge the 1964 Democratic Party Convention
  • Bridge to freedom (1965) : When civil rights protesters marching from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama were assaulted by police, national outrage over the brutality led to President Johnson providing the protection of federal troops, and ultimately to the Voting Rights Act of 1965
