Jerry Mitchell's tenacious reporting about killings committed during the Civil Rights era re-opened cases that led to convictions of men who, for decades, had literally gotten away with murder. His efforts led to justice for Medgar Evers, Michael Schwerner, James Chaney, Andrew Goodman Vernon Dahmer and four young girls killed in a 1963 Birmingham church bombing. Mitchell has chronicled each murder, from cold case to conviction, in his new book, "Race Against Time: A Reporter Reopens the Unsolved Murder Cases of the Civil Rights Era."
