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.

The civil rights version of S-Town and Serial

As captivating as S-Town and Serial but with a huge historical and cultural significance. Difficult and frustrating to grapple with, but impossible to pause or fast forward. Another great podcast by NPR.
