Murder in Mississippi is a 1990 television film which dramatized the last weeks of civil rights activists Michael "Mickey" Schwerner, Andrew Goodman and James Chaney.

Murder in Mississippi is a 1990 television film which dramatized the last weeks of civil rights activists Michael "Mickey" Schwerner, Andrew Goodman and James Chaney, and the events leading up to their disappearance and subsequent murder during Freedom Summer in 1964. It starred Tom Hulce as Schwerner, Jennifer Grey as his wife Rita, Blair Underwood as Chaney, and Josh Charles as Goodman. Hulce received a nomination for Best Actor in a TV Miniseries at the 1990 Golden Globes.

Rockwell conceived Murder in Mississippi as a horizontal composition to run across two pages. The young men would be pictured on the left page and Philadelphia Deputy Price and the posse of Klansmen wielding sticks (we later learned all were armed with rifles and shotguns) on the right. His next idea was to do two separate, vertical pictures-the first showing the civil rights workers and the second showing the Mount Zion Church. Rockwell hired local architect Tom Arienti to draft a church steeple, but later decided against including the church.

Mississippi is entirely composed of lowlands, the highest point being Woodall Mountain, in the foothills of the Cumberland Mountains, 807 feet (246 m) above sea level. Hurricane Camille in 1969 and Hurricane Katrina in 2005, which killed 238 people in the state, were the most devastating hurricanes to hit the state. Both caused nearly total storm surge destruction of structures in and around Gulfport, Biloxi, and Pascagoula.

Gov. Kathleen Blanco). More dispassionate and analytical books will be written about Katrina, few will capture the human drama as well as Brinkley’s. An important, poignant and often-infuriating look at the tragedy. Perhaps it’s because my parents lived on the Mississippi Gulf Coast during Katrina - but had evacuated to Jackson, MS before the hurricane hit - or perhaps it’s because of my long history with the city of New Orleans, but by the time I read this book, Katrina and all her related circumstances were firmly seared into my memory.

Gabriel Brun, a good man, a man who has everything, suddenly experiences the loss of his parents, through murder, and the untimely death of his beloved wife. Depressed and guilt-ridden by these events and his ensuing financial bonanza he embarks on an ill-conceived quest for justice. Cognizant of how others, in his family, have fallen victim to life's travails and succumb to their basic instincts he fails to prevent himself from doing the same and soon is using 'good' people for his own purposes. Misrepresentation of his real objectives leads to lying, deception and death to innocents and, finally, to his killing other human beings, albeit, in self-defense or to protect a friend. Determined and desperate he has no choice but to push ahead and when, at last, he escapes his fatal web, through the intervention of Katrina and its horrible destruction, he must live with the knowledge that he, who thinks himself a man of integrity, has again profited at the expense of untold thousands! How does he do penance? How does he live with this horrible reality?
