African-American civil rights advocate George Raymond Jr. was the leader of the Congress of Racial Equality in Mississippi during the 1960s. He was also a Freedom Rider and a member of the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party.    As a result of George's efforts to organize voter registration in Mississippi's rural communities, he was the focus of police brutality, which led to one of the country's most gruesome high-profile trials, afterwards known as the Mississippi Burning Trial.
