The film, "Neshoba: The Price of Freedom," details the search for justice in the death of three civil rights workers who were murdered in Mississippi nearly 50 years ago.
The event is being sponsored by Mercy College’s Center for Social and Criminal Justice. Center Director Doug Evans said: “It has only been 50 years since the peak of the Civil Rights movement but even after the election of an African American president, the ideals behind the movement and the costs of the social and legal changes it produced are still fresh in our collective consciousness. Micki Dickoff’s documentary film has won numerous accolades from film festivals around the world, including the Boston Film Festival, Texas Black Film Festival, and New York International Independent Film and Video Festival. Mercy is proud to welcome Ms. Dickoff to present her film and answer questions following the screening.”
The event is open to the college community.
