Spies Of The Mississippi
Spies Of The Mississippi 1 x 60'
It is the spring of 1964. The civil rights community is gearing up for a major operation: registering black people to vote.

The state’s entrenched white power structure call it an ‘invasion’ and they are ready to fight back. They fortify the Highway Patrol and 82 county sheriff offices with hundreds of newly sworn-in deputies, stockpiling tear gas and riot gear in larger cities and preparing prison wardens and county jailers to expect an influx of summer guests.

But the most powerful men in the state have another even more powerful weapon in their arsenal: spies. They have infiltrated the civil rights coalition, eavesdropping on its most private meetings, and pilfering its most sensitive documents. Their most potent weapon is a cadre of black operatives who have infiltrated the movement, reporting its future plans, identifying its leaders and tripping up its foot soldiers. The black operatives won the trust of civil rights crusaders to gain intelligence for the segregationist state.
