For months after three white men chased Ahmaud Arbery to his death, Georgia of 2020 looked disconcertingly like Georgia of 1950. This is the story of the long arc of injustice in the American South -- and of the persistence that brought worldwide attention to coastal Georgia. Prior seasons tell the story of Isaiah Nixon, who was killed for voting in 1948 (season one), and A.C. Hall, who police shot in the back in 1962 because they mistakenly thought he was a thief (season two). Hosted by Hank Klibanoff and produced by WABE.
