Mississippi Goddam: 50th Anniversary of Landmark Events of the Civil Rights Movement
The Schomburg Center kicks off its 2013–2014 season with a series of events celebrating the 50th Anniversary of some of the most memorable events of the Civil Rights Movement. Mississippi Goddam, Nina Simone's iconic protest song, encapsulates the profound turmoil of 1963: the murder of Medgar Evers in Mississippi, the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Alabama, and the attacks by vicious dogs against the non-violent freedom fighters throughout the South.
