KRCU Will Air Serialized Investigative Podcast “White Lies” During Black History Month

NPR/White Lies

In 1965, the Rev. James Reeb was murdered in Selma, Alabama. Three men were tried and acquitted, but no one was ever held to account. Fifty years later, two journalists from Alabama return to the city where it happened, expose the lies that kept the murder from being solved, and uncover a story about guilt and memory that says as much about America today as it does about the past.

Starting Sunday, February 2, KRCU will air the first episode of a special seven-part radio series: White Lies. This serialized investigative podcast from NPR's Investigations Team tells the story of one of the most significant unsolved murders of the Civil Rights era.

Hosted by Morning Edition's Noel King and reported by Alabama journalists Andrew Beck Grace and Chip Brantley, White Lies dispels the myths and mistruths that have grown up around the story for the past five decades.
