April 7, 2008 Mississippi Burning reaction paper Soc 223 Place yourself in the year 1964, where the color of your skin meant where  you can and can not eat food, sit on a bus, drink water, and even shop.  In the  movie Mississippi Burning , two FBI agents try to solve the murder of three civil  rights activists that were killed in Mississippi.   The three civil rights activists were killed when they were driving in a car  together down a desolate stretch of highway.  The three boys kept saying to keep  calm and that everything would be alright.  They were followed by multiple cars  and little did they know that the cars that were following them were members of  the Ku Klux Klan, also known as the KKK.  The car with the three activists pulled  over because one of the KKK cars had a police light, and they thought it really  was the police.  As soon as the KKK members walked up to the car, they began  to harass the three boys, and calling the two white boys “nigger lovers”.  All three  boys were killed that night by the KKK members.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
