In 1965, Rev. James Reeb — a Unitarian minister and civil-rights activist — was murdered during the voting rights movement in Selma. After three men were tried and acquitted for his murder, the city’s white community buried the truth.
More than 50 years later, two native Alabamians return to Selma to uncover the truth about who killed James Reeb and to delve into the systems of oppression and violence that allowed it to happen.
A seven-part National Public Radio investigative podcast about Reeb’s murder is available online.
