Fascinating.

Apparently no-one thinks it appropriate to remember this anniversary.

Likely the memories of Goodwin, Schwerner & Chaney will suffer the same fate.

Helluva writer was Ochs.

I generally don't click on links with no explanation.

Greg, I think it's appropriate, but what do you want me to do? This isn't Facebook, where one can click on "Like".

Perhaps one of the saddest songs I have ever heard was "Medgar Evers Lullaby" as appeared on a Judy Collins album from back in the '60's. You can hear a version of it here:

Medgar Evers Lullaby

I still have my copy of the Phil Ochs album. There's also Dylan's Only a Pawn in Their Game that was very good.
