In 1944, in a small town in South Carolina, two young girls were murdered. Segregation was rampant and the town was divided racially by some railroad tracks. The two young white girls killed were found on the black side of town in a ditch. Very quickly, a 14 year old African-American boy was arrested and charged with the murders.
Join Mike and Gibby as they discuss the details of this tragic case where 3 young children were ultimately victims. The details of the arrest, the trial, the conviction, and the execution are astonishing. And years later, a historian and some attorneys would lead the charge to right the wrong that occurred back then in a span of just over 80 days.
