    Max Mason was one of several black circus workers accused of sexually assaulting a white woman in 1920. Three were lynched -- Elias Clayton, Elmer Jackson, and Isaac McGhie -- from a light pole as 10,000 residents of Duluth watched. 

    Two went to trial, and Mason, was the only one convicted in a case that has been mired in controversy ever since. 

    Three days before the 100-year anniversary, a posthumous pardon petition for Max Mason will be heard on June 12, 2020 before the Minnesota Pardon Board. This special podcast series will cover the story leading up to the Pardon Board hearing.

    The pardon depends on a unanimous decision from the Governor, the Chief Justice fo the Minnesota Supreme Court, and me.
