        In August of 1964, the bodies of three murdered civil rights workers were discovered in Mississippi. The victims were among college students participating in voter registration efforts throughout racially segregated Mississippi. This video segment from Iowans Return to Freedom Summer includes a dramatized news report of the crime and a first-hand account from Patti Miller, who describes her reaction to hearing this news while in Mississippi in 1964.
