Some of us watched Mississippi Burning, Alan Parker's masterpiece about one of the civil rights era's most infamous racist killings, and thought, "Damn, racism sucks." Jerry Mitchell, a journalist at the Clarion-Ledger, watched Mississippi Burning and then devoted his life and career to cracking decades-old cold cases involving Ku Klux Klan murders across the South. Over the next few years, his work would build the evidence necessary to bring several Klan members to justice and offer some sense of closure to communities ripped apart by racist violence. Using clean, clear prose shot through with rich, cinematic detail, Mitchell tells the fascinating story of his storied career in Race Against Time. by Stranger Editor Rich Smith
