schema:description""While he wasn't aware of Carmichael's strategy when he decided to join a 1965 summer voter registration program, Dick J. Reavis felt it instinctively when he told his resistant father the reason he was going. "Dad, if we live in a country where nobody pays attention when Negroes die, then I guess that's the way it has to be. Somebody has to pay the price." The price the white middle-class Texan paid when he spent a summer on the wrong side of the tracks in Demopolis, Alabama, was his innocence.""@en
schema:description""If White Kids Die describes his gradual maturation as he encountered the other side of legally enforced racism. Harassed by police for being in a white neighborhood with a black coworker, arrested for vagrancy, and prevented from driving by arcane residency laws, Reavis came to understand the frustration with "The System" that fueled the Civil Rights Movement. At the same time, he saw the infighting and strategizing within the Movement that prevented it from living up to his ideals. In the end, he concludes, "The System made some concessions to our protests, but its power was never trumped. ... But history has not ended, and deep in my heart, I do believe that we - virtually the whole human race - will overcome someday.""--Jacket."@en

An up-and-coming leader named Stokely Carmichael had told a group of prospective volunteers in New York that SNCC wanted to be sure that if blacks were killed for the civil rights cause, whites would die with them. What he said was prophetic, even if it wasn't popular. A few weeks after his speech, three young men - two white and one black - were murdered in Philadelphia, Mississippi. The nation was scandalized.""
