the spy game

I came to an appreciation of nonfiction late in life. But I am making up for it now, I think. SPIES OF MISSISSIPPI tells of a chilling secret commission in Mississippi at the time of the new Civil Rights Movement. This commission spied on NAACP and SNCC meetings, compiled dossiers on activists, labeled them as Communists, destroyed lives. Why? To keep segregation in Mississippi at all costs. This slim book with short chapters tells of some of the nefarious (and the word really works here) activities of this group and the results of their villainy in tough times. <247>
