It was the Freedom Summer of 1964. Civil rights workers Mickey Schwerner, Andrew Goodman, and James Chaney were driving through rural Mississippi. When a police cruiser flashed its lights behind them, they hesitated. Were these law-abiding officers or members of the Ku Klux Klan? Should they pull over or try to outrun their pursuers? The last day in the lives of these courageous young men is relived in this gripping story.

This is a well-illustrated short tale of what happened to 3 civil rights workers when they tried to establish Freedom schools in Mississippi. I'd recommend it for any children who are studying civil rights.
