Goodman S Faith

June 2024

One correction to the fine article “Democratic Debacle” (June/July 2004) by Joshua Zeitz: In regard to the murder of three civil rights workers in Mississippi, Mr. Zeitz writes: “. . . Michael Schwerner, a young, Jewish New Yorker; and Andrew Goodman, a summer volunteer from Queens College....”

Andrew Goodman was likewise Jewish. With a solemn pride, many Jews have noted that both of the white civil rights workers killed with the black James Chaney were Jewish. That historical record should not be lopped in half.
