Mississippi was torn apart by bigotry, hatred, and mistrust in 1964. Three “Freedom Summer” Civil Rights volunteers, Michael Schwerner, Andrew Goodman, and James Cheney met violent deaths while helping African Americans register to vote. As the car carrying the three civil rights workers approached Meridian, a meeting of the Ku Klux Klan was taking place in the Neshoba County woods with all members present. One of the men advanced, removed his hood, and spoke with authority. There was a rebel cheer with fists in the air.

The story is told from the viewpoint of Ben Hawkins, a young white man who wanted to make a difference, and the investigation Ben was pressed into and the Mississippi Burning trial. One KKK member, believing he was upholding tradition, was unwittingly pulled deeper and deeper into the Klan’s evil plans but became a key component in bringing an end to the Klan’s dominance. 

‘Drawn Into Hell’ takes the readers to daring exploits of the unknown. A narrative of mysterious tragedies that is yet to be solved.
