During this guided discussion, participants will investigate the disappearance of three Civil Rights workers in Mississippi during the Freedom Summer of 1964. Examining telephone conversations, oral histories, and documents from the LBJ Library archives, participants will explore the events of the summer of 1964 and the mystery of the missing young men as the nation was enrapt with the passage of the Civil Rights Act through Congress. Join us for this fascinating story and the valiant efforts of young Americans as they fought for equality in America. 

Led by Sheila Metha, Education Specialist at the LBJ Presidential Library.
