In the ninth in a series of weekly news reports documenting the civil rights movement during the summer of 1964, news is announced that the FBI have found the bodies of three missing Freedom Summer workers, Michael Schwerner, James Chaney, and Andrew Goodman, in Mississippi. Host Ted Mascott reads an letter to the editor of the Jackson, Mississippi Clarion Ledger written earlier that denigrates the workers and expresses doubts that they have murdered. Jeff Cowan, a student worker for the Council of Federated Organizations (COFO) reports on the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party (MFDP). He describes a district convention of the MFDP that he attended in Greenville, Mississippi, that was marked by the enthusiasm of the participants for politics. The series was produced for the Educational Radio Network.
