Caravan Supports Voting Rights

A two-day, two-state bus tour to support the Voting Rights Act begins Tuesday, with a stop in Neshoba County and Jackson.

The group is visiting landmarks of the Civil Rights Movement because it says key provisions of the Voting Rights Act are being challenged in the U.S. Supreme Court.

The Freedom Riders will stop at sites to honor voting rights
workers who were murdered for their work.

A Tuesday 9 a.m. stop is planned at the Medgar Evers Library in Jackson.

A 10:30 memorial service is scheduled at Woodworth
Chapel at Tougaloo College.

Another stop is planned at 2:30 p.m. at the site where three civil rights workers, Michael Schwerner, James Chaney and Andrew Goodman, were murdered in 1964 in Neshoba County.
