Andrew Goodman, James Chaney and Michael Schwerner. Civil rights workers killed during Mississippi Freedom Summer.

Larry Rubin volunteered with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) during the 1960s in Georgia and Mississippi. His job was to help register African-American voters, an often dangerous task in the segregated south. At the end of the interview, Larry and I talked about the last national election and attempts to restrict voting in some states. Larry had some surprising suggestions for diminishing the influence of “tea party” style rhetoric in the national conversation.
