Mississippi. 1966. On a hot June afternoon an African American man named James Meredith set out to walk through his home state of Mississippi, intending to fight racism and fear with his feet. He walked to make a statement. But two days into his journey, Meredith was shot and wounded in a roadside attack. Within twenty-four hours, Martin Luther King, Jr., Stokely Carmichael, and other civil rights leaders had taken up Meredith's cause, determined to overcome this violent act and complete Meredith's walk. What started as one man's mission became the March Against Fear.
