Title
James Chaney Funeral
Caption
Philadelphia, MS: August 13, 1964. James Chaney funeral. CORE leader, Dave Dennis, gives funeral oration. He said: I'm sick and tired of going to funerals of black men who have been murdered by white men. I've got vengeance in my heart tonight, and I ask you to feel angry with me. Don't just look at me and go back and tell folks you've been to a nice service. Your work is just beginning. If you go back home and take what these white men in Mississippi are doing to us...if you take it and don't do something about it...then God damn your souls!
