NVJBF: T.K. Thorne - Last Chance for Justice
Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia
Fairfax, VA
Share this event:

Author T.K. Thorne speaks about how she accidentally became a police officer, didn't end up in a space capsule, and wrote a book about a pivotal event in civil rights history--the 1963 Birmingham church bombing case, told from the investigators' perspective.

Last Chance for Justice: How Relentless Investigators Uncovered New Evidence Convicting the Birmingham Church Bombers relates the story of a Birmingham police detective and an FBI special agent thrown together to unravel a 37-year old cold murder case. On September 15, 1963, in the dead of night, Ku Klux Klan members place dynamite beneath the window of an African American church, a bomb that explodes Sunday morning killing four young girls and changing the course of history. Unlikely heroes step forward--a Detroit laundry worker; a man dying of asbestos poisoning; a minister; and two brave women who live in the shadow of terror. Their stories, along with the discovery of lost evidence on a secretly recorded tape, finally bring the bombers to justice.
