C.O.R.E - Freedom Walk

On April 23, 1963, a lone postman marching through the South protesting segregation, carrying a plea he hoped to hand-deliver to Ross Barnett, the segregationist governor of Mississippi, was shot and killed while marching alone near Attalia, Alabama. Members of CORE and SNCC continued his march through Tennessee then were stopped and arrested at the Georgia border.
