    In July of 1964, the decomposed bodies of two black men surfaced from the muddied water of the Mississippi River. The two men had been kidnapped, tortured and murdered by the Ku Klux Klan with the passive cooperation of local law enforcement. Nearly 50 years later, Professor Margaret Burnham and the Northeastern Law School’s Civil Rights and Restorative Justice Project settled a landmark case against the County on behalf of the victims’ families. Come learn about this and other cold cases of the Civil Rights era that will see justice under this groundbreaking project.
