In 1965, Rev. James Reeb was murdered in Selma, Alabama. Three men were tried and acquitted, but no one was ever held to account. Fifty years later, two journalists from Alabama return to the city where it happened, expose the lies that kept the murder from being solved and uncover a story about guilt and memory that says as much about America today as it does about the past.

Well researched- committed scholars, will definitely use this teaching. Well done and thx to the two scholar-researchers. Great interviews - I’m curious do either of you think that it was possible to push the sole living juror harder, in retrospect?

If the first episode is anything to go by, this is going to be an excellent series. Thank you “Up First” for sneaking this into my feed :).
