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.

White Lies

As a lifelong resident of Alabama, I thought I knew what happened in Selma.
The facts of history don’t change, only ones view point.
This is an extraordinary account of facts.

To much talk about race

Remember 13% of the population creates 50% of crime.

Clearly biased

This show doesn’t just tell facts - this show presents a perspective. Even the title has it. I wonder what kind of outrage would a show with the opposite title cause these days.
I wish the reporting stuck to the facts, rather then the wishes.
