Two National Public Radio reporters created a podcast to document their reinvestigation the death of Rev. James Reeb, a Unitarian Universalist minister who was killed in Selma, Alabama in 1965. Three men were tried and acquitted for the murder. This podcast ‘exposes the lies that kept the murder from being solved and uncovers a story about guilt and memory that says as much about America today as it does about the past.’

People’s people are invited to listen to this podcast series (a podcast is digital audio that can be listened to on a computer or smartphone) and join The Study Group for a conversation facilitated by Rev. Rachel in Room 19. You can find this free podcast at https://www.npr.org/podcasts/510343/white-lies. There are seven episodes, each about an hour long. This is a powerful piece of investigative journalism which Rev. Rachel recommends to all, especially since it is a chance to learn about an important event in UU history.
