In June of 1964, three young civil rights workers disappeared in Neshoba County, Miss. That summer, the story of James Earl Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner gripped many people — including commentator Ralph Eubanks. Though he grew up in Mississippi, Eubanks made his first trip to Neshoba County this spring. Eubanks is the author of Ever is a Long Time: A Journey into Mississippi's Dark Past.
