Overview
One summer's night in June, 1963, civil rights leader Medgar Evers was shot in his driveway in front of his Mississippi home. Everyone knew the killer was Byron De La Beckwith who often bragged about shooting Evers at KKK meetings. Yet with two trials and two hung juries made up all white, all male jurors, it seemed inevitable that De La Beckwith would get away with murder. 25 years later, Evers widow refuses to let her husband's killer get away with his crime. Bobby DeLaughter, an assistant District Attorney, believes he can prosecute De La Beckwith and win. Yet he never thought that getting involved in the old case would raise hateful shadows in his home state, hurting his political aspirations and straining his relationship with his wife.
