Families of Murdered Civil Rights Activists Speak

We continue our discussion on the prosecution of Edgar Ray Killen for a 1964 race-tainted triple murder with Ben Chaney, brother of slain activist James Chaney. We also hear from Carolyn Goodman, mother of slain activist Andrew Goodman. Also, Stanley Dearman, recently retired editor of The Neshoba Democrat newspaper, talks about Mississippi then and now.
