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.

Needs editing

I enjoyed the first episode but found the pacing dreadfully slow and in need of editing on subsequent episodes. The writers don't need to take us through every doorbell ring and phone call. I'd love to hear the full story but am not sure I'll made it past episode 3.
