Below is a statement from Queens College President James Muyskens about the Killen verdict:

"Justice was long delayed, but with this guilty verdict, justice has been served--precisely 41 years to the day that our student, Andrew Goodman, was murdered in Mississippi with his fellow civil rights workers. As the plaque on our Chaney-Goodman- Schwerner Clock Tower states, 'Their deaths inspired countless others to continue the struggle for equality and justice for all Americans.' We are better off because of Andy's example of sacrifice, love, and courage. Although this horrific chapter in our history now comes to a close, the march toward human rights continues. Ideally, education will light the path."
