Andrew Goodman: Nov 23, 1943 - June 21, 1964

Today marks the anniversary of the death of Andrew Goodman. He was one of the three civil rights activists who were murdered in Philadelphia Mississippi during Freedom Summer. The story was made into the movie: Mississippi Burning. 41 years after his death there was a manslaughter conviction of one of the perpetrators. A wikipedia article.

In 1958 I was a councillor at Camp Tacoma Pines (now defunct) in Litchfield, Me. The junior councillor assigned to my cabin was Andy Goodman.

I'm third from the left in the bottom row and Andy is fourth from the left. I wonder where all those kids are now; I can remember most of their names. It was a nice bunch of kids and Andy was a really good guy.

This was, apparently, not the year you had my brother in your cabin.
