THE TRIAL OF LEO FRANK:
A Legal Chronicle and Analysis

ORIGINALLY AIRED
FEBRUARY 8, 2008

Archived Webcast

About the Seminar :
The murder in 1913 at the National Pencil Factory in Atlanta, Georgia of thirteen-year-old Mary Phagan, set into motion the dynamics involving an ambitious prosecutor; the credibility of Negro vs. Caucasian; the resurrection of the KKK; the election of a Senator; the downfall of a Governor; the fate of a “Yankee Jew”; and a life-long secret to be kept by a 14-year-old boy until he reached his 8o’s.  This seminar chronicles the events from the arrest of Leo M. Frank to his lynching in Marietta, Georgia in 1915.
