Storyboard Text

  • trump
  • doctrine
  • ferociously
  • A sound of or as if of trumpeting. "In June 1964, Willie Peacock, a member of the civil rights organization the SNCC, was arrested, along with several black colleagues, on a trumped-up traffic charge inside Columbus, Mississippi." - pg. 1
  • conceded
  • A principle or position or the body of principles in a branch of knowledge or system of belief. In its 1896 ruling in Plessy v. Furguson, the US Supreme Court validated racial segregation in Mississippi and elsewhere when it ruled that states could require separate facilities for blacks and whites as long as they were equal--the so-called "separate but equal" doctrine. pg. 4-5
  • reiterated
  • Exhibiting or given to extreme fierceness and unrestrained violence and brutality. Mississippi's white racists fought ferociously to maintain their supremacy, and many blacks were harassed, arrested, beaten, and even murder. pg. 6
  • melee
  • Admit that something is true or valid after first denying or resisting it. However, when cross-examined, Hatcher conceded that he did not have personal knowledge of any evidence that showed that Killen committed the murders, and Killen had not claimed to organize the murder of three men. pg. 172
  • Say something again or a number of times, typically for emphasis or clarity. The white prisoner reiterated that no one would stop them if he and the others wanted to give Mickey a beating. pg. 90
  • A confused fight, skirmish, or scuffle. Only when black youths started fighting back did the police intervene in the melee to restore order. pg. 142
