In the summer of 1964, also known as Freedom Summer, the Free Southern Theater adapted the play, In White America by Martin Duberman. The theater performed throughout 22 communities in Mississippi and in New Orleans, Louisiana. The play depicted the social climate of the era, and specifically, the murders of three Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) field workers - Andrew Goodman, James Chaney, and Michael Schwerner. They were murdered on June 21, 1964, in Philadelphia, Mississippi, by Ku Klux Klan members.
