James Chaney

Andrew Goodman, James Chaney,and Michael Schwerner--Murdered by Bigots in MS in Freedom Summer 1964
The NAACP and Sam Clark DiBrell. honor the memories of James Chaney, Michael Schwerner, and Andrew Goodman.
Fifty years ago, on June 21, 1964, my older brother, Andrew Goodman, was murdered near Philadelphia, Miss. He and his colleagues Michael Schwerner and James Chaney were ambushed by more than a dozen members of the Ku Klux Klan, including the county's deputy sheriff. They were taken to an unmarked dirt road and shot, one by one. Their bodies weren't discovered for 44 days, a mystery and a tragedy that continues to elicit raw emotions even a half-century later. It happened on the first day of Freedom Summer, an effort by the black leadership to flood Mississippi with northern college students who would help register African-American voters. At the time, barely 7% of Mississippi's black residents were registered to vote. In eight of the 13 mostly black counties in the state, not a single African American had ever voted. A century after the Civil War, they remained disenfranchised — citizens without a voice. It was more than segregation; it was subjugation. Something had to be done. A daring initiative The ...

Welcome once again to our Bi-weekly article aimed at educating our citizens on various aspects of law enforcement and what we, as a police department, are doing, in partnership with the citizens of Lemoore, to maintain a safe city and enhance our quality of life.

Maya Angelou from the foreword to MY MANTELPIECE, published in partnership with The Andrew Goodman Foundation: The murders of Andrew Goodman, James Chaney, and Mickey Schwerner rocked me to the core of my very being. I had grown up in a little village in Arkansas. Lynchings were not unusual. And they were legal, as far as we could see. Nobody ever went to jail for them. So I was used to white men killing black men. But I was not used to white men killing white men because of black men… Those three young men represent three hundred thousand young men and women who dared, who had the courage to go to the lion’s den and try to scrub the lion’s teeth. People live in direct relation to the heroes and she-roes that they have, always and always. Young people can look at the famous football player, the well-known baseball player, the golfer and say, “I want to be like that.” Well, we have to have that in the Civil Rights movement. Some became famous because of what they said. We have to have the people ...

I was a child when Martin Luther King rose to prominence in the public eye. It was a troubled time, very troubled. There was a lot of hatred going around, resentment, and the deaths of both black and white children to show for it. I recall the Freedom Riders, the deaths of Michael Schwerner, Andrew Goodman, and James Chaney by the KKK; I watched little girls dying in church bombings, riots. It was an ugly time, a scary time for a child who couldn't fully understood why there was so much anger, why people were willing to kill children, willing to kill young college students just signing up black voters in Mississippi. And in that midst of hatred, rose a man with the power to spellbind people to listening. Instead of preaching ‘an eye for an eye’, he offered ‘turn the other cheek’. In the face of violence, he offered peace. Martin Luther King understood the only way to win was to do it honorably. There are those who try to tear down his memory, saying he wasn’t perfect. Well, none of us ...

Stand up to bigotry of ‘states’ rights’ BY JESSE JACKSON November 4, 2013 In 1980, after receiving the nomination of his party, Ronald Reagan kicked off his presidential campaign in Philadelphia, Miss., at the Neshoba County Fair. Neshoba County is not someplace you just drop into; you have to want to go there. It’s a small town remembered largely for being the site of the horrid 1964 murders of three young Civil Rights volunteers, Andrew Goodman, Michael Schwerner and James Chaney. Reagan went to Mississippi to give a speech that focused on states’ rights and the dangers of big government. He went to send a message — and it was heard clearly across the South. States are rightly hailed as laboratories of democracy, places that can experiment and try out programs and ideas that, if successful, spread across the country. But from the earliest days of the Republic, states’ rights has always been the doctrine of reaction. It has been invoked to stop national reform and to protect local privilege ...
Let us remember James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Shwerner for their sacrifice for voting rights and Civil Rights.

Paula Behnken · Top Commenter This seems like a good place to repost this: We're sorry, Medgar Evers, James Reeb, Jimmy Jackson, James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, Michael Schwerner, Vernon Dahmer, Herbert Lee, George Lee, Lamar Smith, Addie Mae Collins, Denise McNair, Carole Robertson, Cynthia Wesley, Louis Allen, Oneal Moore, Viola Liuzzo. The SCOTUS owes you all an apology for undoing important safeguards to the legislation you died for, directly or indirectly. Some of us will never forget. Note: The names are of those killed because they were associated with people or places where Voting Rights Activities were happening or being planned, before passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Forty nine years ago, white supremacists murdered Mississippi Freedom Summer activists James Chaney, Michael Schwerner and Andrew Goodman in a brutal terrorist act to forestall the march of Civil Rights and African-American empowerment.

Let's mark Martin Luther King Day with a look at five TV movies that dramatized the Civil Rights movement of the 1950s and '60s. (King, of course, has been a character in numerous TV movies, and was played memorably by Paul Winfield in the 1978 miniseries "King.") For Us the Living: The Medgar Evers Story (1983) -- A PBS drama about the murdered Mississippi Civil Rights activist. He was played by Howard Rollins Jr. Irene Cara played his wife, Myrlie. Murder in Mississippi (1990) -- Dramatized the last weeks, disappearance and subsequent murders of three Civil Rights workers in 1964 Mississippi. The movie starred Tom Hulce as Michael Schwerner, Josh Charles as Andrew Goodman and Blair Underwood as James Chaney. Road to Freedom: The Vernon Johns Story (1994) -- James Earl Jones played the title character, who was King's predecessor as pastor at Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Ala., and is regarded as one of the fathers of the U.S. Civil Rights movement. Boycott (2001) -- The story of the 381-day ...
So, as I'm flipping through dad's latest NRA newsletter, I see that NRA President Marion Hammer has started comparing the regulation of assault weapons to segregation. I wonder what Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Fred Hampton, Michael Schwerner, Andrew Goodman, James Chaney, Hakim Jamal, and the countless other Civil Rights figures assassinated by gunfire would think of that.

Pictured below are Andrew Goodman, James Chaney, & Michael Schwerner,all murdered on June 21st, 1964 during the Freedom Summer voter registration drive.. The movie ''Mississippi Burning", revolved around Their deaths, & other events that summer as well. If these 3 lost their lives for a simple right to vote, we have no excuse of not making it to the polls. Regardless of who you support, let your voice be heard.
these three young men died for your right to vote. Honor them and vote: James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner

My people, Today is the day that you get to do something that most of the world does not have the opportunity to do. Although we live in a country that constantly boasts about its ideals of equality, it still has not addressed the elephant in the room which represents its history of slavery, bigotry, and discrimination. Today, conduct yourself in a manner that is a reflection if the blood that was shed so that you could exercise this basic fundamental right. Remember the grandfather clause, literacy tests, and the poll tax. Remember the Great Republican Betrayal in the Presidential Election of 1876. Remember 16th St. Baptist Church where 16 year old Denise McNair died along with 3 other little black girls while she taught Sunday school. Remember the Little Rock Nine. Remember Congressman John Lewis and hundreds of others on Bloody Sunday at the Edmund Pettis Bridge in Selma, Alabama. Remember Mickey Schwerner, Andy Goodman, and James Chaney on that fateful night in Mississippi. Remember Emmit Till and a ...
If you have the right to vote, and you have nothing stopping you from voting like, maybe you're on a battlefield that day, there is really no reason you shouldn't exercise that right. If you are thinking of not voting I ask you to consider these three names: Andrew Goodman; Michael Schwerner; James Chaney. Find out who these men are and look at the price they paid for trying to give the right that so many take for granted. Once you do that and you're still making rediculous excuses for not voting, go to the nearest mirror and say to the top of your voice; SHAME ON YOU!!!
Jon Manley overcame some rocky moments to score the season’s first submission, sinking in a deep guillotine choke on James Chaney at 3:25 of a thrilling one round brawl.
While talking to our daughter this weekend, I asked if she knew James Chaney. She replied “no.” He was a civilian right activist from Meridian Ms. who was investigating the burning of a Methodist Church and holding voter registration rallies near Philadelphia, Ms. He and two other white males were killed for their actions. WHY SHOULD SHE VOTE? Many died so that you and I COULD have that right. If we don’t vote we make their death in vain. She agreed to go and vote. Please Vote
They say that time waits for no one/ so there is need to beg watches to stop tick tocking/ because we talking about voting to continue this revolution/ A people will gather around the altars of common sense and speak with one voice and declare that Herbert Lee, James Chaney, and Medgar Evers didn't die for nothing/ So come November 6 I will stand in line and.
For the last 3 fights I hope to see Dom Waters vs James Chaney, Michael Hill vs Matt Secor and lastly Mike Ricci vs John Manley

For all the people who voted for Pres. Obama in 2008 and who are going to 'punish' him for failing to wave a magic wand making laws without the support or cooperation of Congress. Take a look at this. You may not realize the price paid in blood for your rights, but the price was paid. To sit at home and feel superior is obscene. If they were alive today, Andrew, Michael, and James would certainly be voting and registering others to vote.

Today on the LLP we are in Philadelphia of the toughest places in the Civil Rights movement...the area where Goodman, Schwerner and Chaney were murdered and an active place of mayhem and repression. They elected their very first African American mayor several years ago and undertook a community wide reconciliation program that is a model for other communities struggling with race and class issues. It ain't all peachy, of course.. many folks still like it the way it was. But we are here to celebrate with those who are trying to move things forward and find out how they are doing. Last night, we were at James Chaney's grave site with his daughter who is one of the most extraordinary people on the planet. She talked and sang with such honesty and grace. Amazing. And later today, we are at the home of Civil Rights worker Medgar Evers who also was gunned down for his work in the movement.

For young adults wondering how they might make a difference in the church and society in the present age, note that many of the leaders/activists of the American Civil Rights movement were young adults at the height of the movement (e.g. Martin Luther King, Jr. John Lewis, Stokely Carmichael, Andrew Young, Andrew Goodman, Michael Schwerner and James Chaney).
Because of people like MLK, Jr., Medgar Evers, Andrew Goodman, James Chaney, Mickey Schwerner & The Freedom Riders, I will always vote
Music Video for Mr. Gray's song. Tells the story of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner
ON THIS DAY N HISTORY (1964): James Chaney of Meridian, MS, Schwerner & Goodwin of NYC were murdered near Philadelphia, MS, 1964 by the KKK (a little over a year after Medgar Evers murder in Jackson, MS). Their bodies were finally discovered on Aug. 4, 1964. This started what is known as, "The Mississippi Burning" case in The U.S. Post Office/Federal Courthouse in downtown Meridian, Mississippi (which is now listed on National Register of Historical Places because of this case).
On this and every Memorial Day, remember the brave young Americans who died fighting for your freedom, Americans with names like James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner, and pledge your life and honor to continuing the fight for which they gave all.
