This chapter focuses on the history of race discrimination in Forrest County, Mississippi. The discussions include the early efforts of fifteen brave black men to overturn an illegal pattern of discrimination by a Forrest County registrar; and the establishment of the Mississippi State Sovereignty Commission on March 29, 1956, which gathered information on civil rights activists, real and imagined, investigated meetings and other activities, and made plans to subvert them.
