MAIN SOURCES

The most valuable source of information for this book was the Federal Bureau of Investigation's twenty-three-volume report on the Jackson State killings (SUNYA). The FBI's report includes summaries of nearly a thousand interviews with journalists, cornerboys, students, teachers, college administrators, firemen, National Guardsmen, and policemen in Jackson. Most of these interviews were conducted within a week of the shootings—many within twenty-four hours. The report includes photographs, charts, handbills, interoffice memoranda, results of ballistics tests, and other documents. Although all interviewees' names had been deleted
