Mississippi Got the Message!

•    Imagine being one of nine students out of five hundred, chosen to change history.
•    Imagine having such great impact on the “Sovereignty Commission” and the white citizens of Mississippi that the state eventually made a 180 degree turn in its attitude towards its black citizens.
•    Imagine what kind of person could be involved in such a thing. Or just read the book!
