Tomorrow at five in the assembly room I am hosting two JD candidates from Northeastern Law School in Boston, MA. They are giving a presentation of their findings on the 1940’s era murders of 3 African American men in Wilson, NC. Their work is a part of Northeastern Law School’s ongoing Civil Rights and Restorative Justice Project, a program that tries to shed light on Jim Crow era murders of African Americans in the South who were killed due to racial violence but no one was convicted of the crime. They contacted me a couple of weeks ago to see if I could help them find family members of people in involved in the murder trial of Otis Newsome, a WWII vet and funeral director who was killed in cold blood in 1948 while trying to buy a bottle of brake fluid. I was able to find and interview the son of the prosecutor who was able to give the law candidates access to his father’s files on the case. It should be a very interesting presentation and I am honored to be a part of it.
