Publisher's Summary

At first Hiram is excited to visit his hometown in Mississippi. But soon after he arrives, he crosses paths with Emmett Till, a black teenager from Chicago who is also visiting for the summer and Hiram sees firsthand how the local whites mistreat blacks who refuse to "know their place." When Emmett's tortured dead body is found floating in a river, Hiram is determined to find out who could do such a thing. But what will it cost him to know?

Mississippi Trial, 1955 is a gripping read, based on true events that helped spark the Civil Rights Movement.

    "Great High School Civil Rights Read!"
    What did you love best about Mississippi Trial, 1955?

    It used all the elements of Literature for my students to follow~!


    What about Victor Bevine’s performance did you like?

    Nice changes of voice and influence of southern dialect.
