A Witness for God in Mississippi; The Story of Dr. Charles Johnson

As the key witness to take the stand in the trial famously dubbed the “Mississippi
Burning'' case, Dr. Johnson,a young preacher fresh out of Bible college, became a voice for justice and equality in the segregated South. Overcoming fear and adversity and offering clarity to the event that led to the Voting Rights Act of 1965, Johnson's story of love, conviction, adversity and redemption is a riveting account of a life pursuing the call of God and the fight for justice and equality.
