A Powerful Tale of the Fight for Civil Rights. Based on True Events.
Murder in Mississippi recounts the infamous murders of three civil rights workers by Ku Klux Klan members in 1964. The film dramatizes the last weeks of the lives of the three activists, who made a trip down south to encourage African-American voter registration, and follows the life of one of the victims, Mickey Schwerner, played by Tom Hulce (Amadeus) in an Emmy-nominated performance. Also starring Blair Underwood (LA Law), Josh Charles (Dead Poet's Society) and Jennifer Grey (Dirty Dancing).
Editor's Note
In 1964, three civil rights workers were murdered by the Ku Klux Klan. The crime lit up headlines and became a rallying cry for social justice. MURDER IN MISSISSIPPI recounts the last week in the lives of the victims, played by Tom Hulce (AMADEUS), Blair Underwood (L.A. LAW), and Josh Charles (DEAD POET'S SOCIETY). This searing true story later formed the basis for the 1988 film MISSISSIPPI BURNING.
