(This post is part of a series concerning Curtis Flowers, an innocent man convicted of a horrific crime that has divided a small Mississippi town. Information on the Flowers case can be found here.)
The Curtis Flowers case was featured Monday night on “The Take-Away” a public radio program. According to their website, “The show is a co-production of WNYC Radio and Public Radio International, in collaboration with The BBC World Service, New York Times Radio and WGBH Boston.” Guests Charlie Smith of the Greenwood Commonwealth and Shaila Dewan, the author of a recent NYT piece on racial bias in jury selection appear as guests.
For fourteen years this case has languished in obscurity. Those days may finally be over.
