She played an active role in the Civil Rights movement in Meridian as a teenager. Come to find out she also graduated HS with my mother. Her book is called "Detour before midnight" it is partially about the state of mind before they went missing as they were at her home that evening. Bernice Sims is her name.

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 ...

Please read, then please share. "On June 21st, 1964, three Civil Rights activists were murdered in Philadelphia, Mississippi. The young men - James Chaney, a 21-year old black man from Meridian, MS, Andrew Goodman, a 20-year old white man from New York and Michael Schwerner, a 24-year old white man also from New York - were registering black people to vote."

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. But, there could be many more who deserve to be listed. Reply · 18 · Like · Follow Post · Edited · 9 hours ago
