The murder of Reverend George Lee, an early civil rights activist, in Belzoni, Mississippi, remains an FBI cold case some forty years later.
In this four part documentary series, we follow the trail of the FBI’s initial investigation and meet with relatives of the victims, civil rights activists and elected officials in an attempt to uncover the facts behind unsolved civil rights murders from the late 1950's & early 1960's. A horrific chapter in our country’s troubled history of racial conflict.
