18feb – Race Against Time: A Reporter Reopens the Unsolved Murder Cases of the Civil Rights Era, 12pm

Investigative journalist Jerry Mitchell takes readers on the twisting road that led to the reopening of four of the most infamous killings during the civil rights movement. His work played a central role in bringing killers to justice for the assassination of Medgar Evers, the firebombing of Vernon Dahmer, the 16th Street Church bombing in Birmingham, and the Mississippi Burning case. A book signing follows the program.
