Free screening of 'Spies of Mississippi' at the Beach Museum of Art

By Martha Scott

As part of Kansas State University's Martin Luther King Jr. Observance Week, a free screening of "Spies of Mississippi" will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 22, at the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art. The film is about the state of Mississippi's actions to undermine the civil rights movement.

Enter the chilling world of anti-civil rights espionage. "Spies of Mississippi" reveals in shocking detail the state of Mississippi's effort to undermine the civil rights movement using a vast network of spies. The Sovereignty Commission would stop at nothing, even murder, to retain what they called the "Mississippi way of life."

K-State Black Student Union members Justice Davis, Justine Floyd, Michael Shode, Dominic White and Katheryne Johnson will moderate discussion.
