Civil Rights Martyr Honored in Tupper Lake

Listen to this story
In the days before their deaths in Mississippi, in 1964, two civil rights activists from New York State visited the Adirondacks. Michael Schwerner, who was 24-years-old, vacationed with friends on Great Sacandaga Lake. Andrew Goodman, who was twenty, visited his family's retreat, Shelter Cove Camp, on Tupper Lake. Goodman grew up spending his summers at the lake. People there have worked to make sure that the Goodman name is remembered in the community. In 2002, they petitioned the Federal government to name a mountain in Andrew Goodman's honor. Brian Mann has our story.
