White Lies

 7 people rated this podcast
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.

I hadn't heard about Reverend James Reeb, a Unitarian Universalist minister who was murdered in Selma, Alabama in the height of the Civil Rights Movement, whose murder had never been solved. The podcast team were able to locate a witness who identified a person who had not been previously implicated in the beating death of Reeb. Terrific investigative work.
Well-produced (as expected from NPR) and very interesting to see how they tracked down all this information.
I could not stop listening to this podcast. Incredibly well crafted, suspenseful, and enormously important. Absolutely loved it.
