Freedom Summer

I was old enough to follow it--though not to take part--and now there's an acclaimed doc airing tonight on PBS on the "Freedom Summer" civil rights organizing and trips to Mississippi in 1964 (the year the three activists were murdered).   To mark this, here's Nina Simone's great "Mississippi Goddman" and Phil Ochs' "Here's to the State of Mississippi."
