Justice Delayed, but not Denied: An Evening with Douglas Jones

The Murnaghan Fellowship, 10.15.14

Decades after one of the most devastating attacks of the Civil Rights era, U.S. Attorney Douglas Jones led the team that successfully re-opened the case of the 1963 16th Street Baptist Church bombing. Jones' efforts led to the indictment of former KKK members responsible for the murder of Addie Mae Collins, Cynthia Wesley, Carole Robertson and Denise McNair. 

Join us for a public lecture on the case by Mr. Jones:
