Event description

Description

Investigative journalist Jerry Mitchell, author of the new book Race Against Time: A Reporter Reopens the Unsolved Murder Cases of the Civil Rights Era, comes to BHS to discuss four of the biggest cases he’s ever cracked including the 1963 assassination of NAACP leader Medgar Evers, the 1963 bombing of the Birmingham Sixteenth Street Baptist church, the 1966 firebombing of Vernon Dahmer, and the “Mississippi Burning” case.

This is part of a series of programs offered annually in recognition of Martha Rubin’s commitment to social justice and equity. Martha Rubin is a Trustee Emerita (in memoriam) of Brooklyn Historical Society.
