Amazingly the Mississippi State Sovereignty Commission was unknown to most Americans until now. Back in 1956 there was an attempt to prevent civil rights from being granted to citizens during the 1950s and 1960s. The commission used propaganda methods to stop civil rights leaders from promoting the cause; even labeling them as communists. Many of the freedom riders were harrassed or worse. A must have book for research on the behind the scenes events of the civil right movement. Recommended for high schools or higher only.
