The new Neshoba: The Price of Freedom Movie Poster has been released and it portrays the three assassinated civil rights workers James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner. And in the poser is a very catchy question, “Why are they still walking the streets?” and I presume the accused of the three hasn’t been proven to be the real murderer.
Taking the lives of three is no ordinary incident and while there is no right for one to take another’s life this cannot be prevented. And what makes it worse is on the occurrences of such incidents there needs to be proof to punish an accused and this also leads to the statement, “no proof no punishment” and longer you take to find proof the longer the murderer is safe and untouched.
Directed by Micki Dickoff and Tony Pagano, Neshoba: The Price of Freedom follows the disappearance and murder of James Chaney Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner who became victims of a mob of Klansmen in Neshoba County, Mississippi, at the beginning of the Freedom Summer in June 1964.
Only forty one years later the state convicted the one man in the killings, 80 year old Baptist preacher and racist Edgar Ray Killen.
Neshoba: The Price of Freedom features the outspoken views of a Klan who was charged with a civil rights murder and claims to be having self-defended himself, interviews with the families of the victims and with Neshoba County citizens.
