James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner: Courageous Mission - Preface

"Schwerner, Chaney, and Goodman", American heroes, by Unknown, The Post News Group, Fair Use.

Under any other circumstances, these three young men may have never met.  But in the summer of 1964 in Mississippi, they all separately came to the decision that the Black Americans' struggle for voting rights should be the same rights that White Americans enjoyed.  

They went to Mississippi to help in the cause and their good intentions have become linked with the tragic events in that summer of 1964.  The events shocked the country and brought change to the South.  

This is their compelling story.
