"As the car with the three civil rights workers approached Meridian, a Ku Klux Klan meeting was being held in the woods of Neshoba County with one hundred members present. They all had their hoods on, a sign that secret plans were on the agenda. One of the men stepped forward and removed his hood. He spoke with authority. 'His kind always come back for more, and when he does, we'll be ready for him. We're organized, and we'll get him, and he'll be sorry he ever heard of the great state of Mississippi!' A rebel cheer went up with fists in the air. " During the turbulent summer of 1964, three civil rights workers drove to Philadelphia, Mississippi, a town ensnared by the tight grasp of the Ku Klux Klan, to assist in voter registration of blacks. They would not have the chance to accomplish their goal. Told from the viewpoint of Ben Hawkins, a young white man who wanted to make a difference, "Drawn Into Hell" vividly depicts the investigation Ben was pressed into and the Mississippi Burning trial. One KKK member, believing he was upholding tradition, was pulled deeper and deeper into the Klan's evil plans. Join Don VanLandingham as he describes how one town was drawn into hell.
