Two Trains Runnin'

Rated NR 80 minutes 2016

"In June of 1964 hundreds of college students, eager to join the civil rights movement, traveled to Mississippi, starting what would be known as Freedom Summer. That same month, two groups of young men--made up of musicians, college students and record collectors--also traveled to Mississippi. Though neither group was aware of the other, each had come on the same errand: to find an old blues singer and coax him out of retirement.... Finally, on June 21, 1964, these two campaigns collided in memorable and tragic fashion." (via
