Interview with Bernice Sims

This episode features a conversation between Andrew Goodman Ambassador Wyn Garfinkle (Rising Senior) and Bernice Sims, a veteran of the civil rights movement and author of Detour Before Midnight. During their conversation, you will hear about some of the final moments of the lives of Andrew Goodman, James Earl Chaney, and Michael Schwerner, as Bernice Sims was one of the last people to see the three men alive. This conversation highlights voter registration tactics used in the 1960s and 1970s, and how the fight for the right to vote continues today with young activists who are taking bold actions to make their voice heard.
