A Mississippi Freedom Summer Pilgrimage: An Atrocity We Must Never Forget

We must make sure that our children and all of us know our history and that the atrocities that wiped out the lives of countless individuals who died for freedom and justice during the Civil Rights Movement -- including eight Black men whose bodies were only found as the FBI dredged Mississippi rivers and swamps searching for three other young men -- do not ever happen again. We must all do our part to create a safe and hopeful nation for every child.
