Seeking Justice for Hidden Deaths
In the United States between 1930 and 1970 there were thousands of racially motivated homicides, a brutal continuation of the gruesome murders that African Americans had endured for decades before, even as the Civil Rights movement began to stir. Many of these homicide cases are cold cases, left unsolved and, too often, forgotten. Margaret Burnham joins Dan Cohen, host of the What's New Podcast, to discuss her participation in the Civil Rights Movement, career as a lawyer, and the development of the Civil Rights and Restorative Justice Project.
