The Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) is a U.S. civil rights organization. Founded in 1941, the group stressed non-violence as a means to achieve racial equality in the U.S. It played an important role in the Civil Rights Movement, active pushing for desegration throughout the U.S. through the use of marches, public protests, and the like. In 1964, three of its members, James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner, were murdered in Mississippi by members of the Ku Klux Klan.

In a recurring nightmare that plagued Deputy Cecil Price throughout his life, CORE became RACE, an organization dedicated to ending the oppressive black domination of whites in Mississippi.
