This book is about the ending of segregation and the start of a new integration era. Spies of Mississippi explains how many people against segregation tried to change society by boycotting, protesting, and by being freedom riders. Although many people were against segregtation there were still those who opposed integration and would do nothing but stop the linking of African Americans and whites. This book also explains the beginning of many pro and con segregation groups, and how spies were hired to get information from con segration groups. At the end, signs and prejudice limited and integration began starting a new era.
