'Burning' questions
Oscar-nominated "Mississippi Burning" has come under fire for failing to recognize the contributions of black leaders during the civil rights struggle.
A major criticism is that there is no strong black leader represented in the film such as Aaron Henry, then a civil rights worker and now a Mississippi state representative.
the movie primarily deals with the deaths of Andrew Goodman, Michael Schwerner and James Chaney on June 21, 1964.
Now Queens College has set up a "discussion" between Henry and producer Fred Zollo for Friday at the school where Goodman was a student. The will be followed by a screening.
