Spies of Mississippi: Not-So-Secret Meetings

Clip: Season 15 Episode 11 | 37s

In this excerpt from the Independent Lens documentary Spies of Mississippi, some of the black leaders in the civil rights movement became more aware something suspicious was going on when white agents started showing up at their meetings, even if not yet aware of Sovereignty Commission. They just knew their meetings were not a secret: “by the time we leave in the morning, they gonna know anyway.”
