"Been more than three years since I got an email from a woman telling me about a man named Curtis Flowers. Madeline Baron is the lead reporter for American Public Media's podcast in the Dark Samara. Freemark is the podcast managing producer right away. It was like It's possible that someone would be tried six times. To investigate how that happened. The in the dark team descended on Wynonna, a town of 5000. Most of downtown like party furniture had faded away. Podcast. Reporters plan to stay a few months they stayed a year. Knocking on doors and interviewing hundreds of people. Was there anything that anybody said early on that made you think of? Well, maybe he was the guy who did this. Yeah. I mean, of course, we have to assume that somebody has been convicted four times. There's a chance he's guilty, of course, but The more we looked into the evidence, there wasn't a single piece of evidence that actually held up. The first piece of evidence to crumble was the winding route. Doug Evans told jurors. The Curtis Flowers walked that July morning that Curtis woke up that morning. He was angry. He no longer works at the furniture store. He wanted to kill the people there, but he didn't have a gun. So he walked across town stole a gun from a car walked home. Still angry, left his house walk with the gun to the furniture store shot. Four people on the head walked home. It seemed far fetched. Flowers would brazenly walk so far in broad daylight. On the podcast. Reporters started talking to rout witnesses who claimed they saw flowers. Pattern emerged. It was clear that they did not, for example, pick up the phone and call the police and say, I saw something suspicious that they were sought out like months later in a lot of cases. It turned out that they felt like they needed to tell law enforcement that this happened or is one guy said they already told me that they knew I saw Curtis. They had the whole story laid out for me, and all I had to do was say yes, who was the most important route witness clumsy farming? Comey testified that Curtis Flowers was running away from the furniture store shortly after the murders. This is, of course, incredibly damning testimony. If it's true, and she testified to it six times and what did you learn? That clammy Was not telling the truth. Fleming. Fleming admitted to the podcast that she didn't remember when she saw flowers running in November. We spoke to her in Wynonna, where she still lives. You saw Curtis running through town. But, you know, I was sure what day will Really It happened, But I don't know what they will. Did You ever tell the prosecutors? Hey, I'm not sure about the day. And what did they say? What? Heard it that you want me in a Tell what I see. They won't worry about what day I see. Another key witness also recanted in the dark. Odell Cookie. Homan, a career criminal had testified the Curtis Flowers confessed to him in prison. Producers tomorrow, Freemark tracked down Hallman in Parchman prison. And how are you talking to him? Well, it turns out he had an illicit cell phone. He would set up a blanket for to talk, said the guards wouldn't wouldn't be able to see him so he would sort of hang blankets up over his bunk and hide in there. Eventually he admitted to free mark that he made the story up about Curtis confessing. This is home in on the phone from prison. He killed some people here now. He never told me there was a lot The podcast reported that after home and came forward with a phony confession, he cut generous deals with prosecutors for years and avoided punishment for multiple felony charges. While he was free in 2016. He murdered three people and was finally sentenced to life in prison. Remember this is that that really beautiful music, The revelations turned in the dark into a sensation. The podcast was downloaded 42 million times. Curtis Flowers could not listen to it. He was on death row in Parchman prison reading transcripts of the podcast and you're reading about these witnesses finally recanting their stories. I think my first Reaction. Well, it's about time. And I was just really go home. His flowers waited on death row. The podcast team continued unraveling his case by scouring closed jails and abandoned factories for clues and documents. We had to go and search them out like we're on a treasure hunt, and you're like, What are those mounds in the corner, you know, And like all those of the public records for this county, and then you go through it, and you're like these air covered in mouse droppings there covered in mold. They also analyzed decades of court data that revealed prosecutor Doug Evans had a history of excluding black people from Juries at a disproportionate rate. Across all of Curtis Flowers trials. 61 of the 72 jurors were white. All 61 voted Those numbers reverberated far beyond Mississippi. In 2019, the U. S Supreme Court ruled that Evans and the state of Mississippi had violated Curtis Flowers constitutional rights and overturned his conviction. Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote that there was a relentless, determined effort to rid the jury of black individuals. Six months later, Curtis Flowers was released on bail. He walked out of jail with the monitor on his ankle and his sisters on his arms. How.

"Flowers had no criminal record and was more likely to be on stage with a gospel group than in handcuffs. There was no murder weapon, no didna or fingerprints linking him to the crime. But it took an all white jury just in our to deliberate and convict him. At age 27 Curtis Flowers was sentenced to death on putting the Mississippi State penitentiary known his Parchman prison. Are you scared? Oh, yeah. What's Parchman, like? The worst is thing he ever dreamed about. Yeah, like a nightmare. As you know, you hear all kinds of noise at night. You know inmates who l just snap some who have lost it the act up all night. You were sitting on death row. I imagine other death row inmates were being executed. Yes, and that would never never reckoned itself. His conviction was appealed and overturned. But there would be five more trials for Curtis Flowers for the same crime by the same prosecutor. How can a person be tried for the same crime? Six times? This case is unprecedented. In the history of the American legal System. Attorney Rob McDuff of the Mississippi Center for Justice joined Curtis Flowers legal team in 2019. In the first three trials. Flowers was found guilty. But each conviction was overturned for prosecutorial misconduct. And when we talk about prosecutorial misconduct were these simple missteps, or was it something bigger going on? These convictions were reversed because of the prosecutors, misrepresentation of the evidence to the jury. And because of his discrimination in the selection of the jury, But the same prosecutor goes after Curtis Flowers again time after time. There's nothing in our system that stops that from happening. Unfortunately, there is not this prosecutor was like Captain, a habit hunting the whale. The prosecutor was district attorney Doug Evans, who even after hung Juries and trials four and five kept going in 2010. Evans finally got a conviction to stick and trial six. Flowers returned to death row. Then an email changed his fortunes. It's.

"Welcome to the kaleidoscope, where every week we discuss issues, including race and gender. This week, we begin with a tribute to civil rights icon Congressman John Lewis, whose battle for equality started with sit ins and ended up on Capitol Hill, where he spent his life battling for the rights of everyone for people of color. Two women two LGBTQ people here is part of his speech from the historic 1963 march on Washington. People locked up in jail holding an old again and you're way out of freedom and we want it now. Lewis died a week ago at the age of 80 after a battle with pancreatic cancer. On the same day as another lion of the civil rights movement. Reverend C. T. Vivian, Dr Martin Luther King Jr is Field General Howard University professor Greg Car tells us about the importance of both men, the history of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and of the Southern Freedom Movement during that period. Is really anchored in these thinkers who are also activists when we think of Septima Clark and C T, Vivian and Wyatt tee Walker, really thinking about intellectuals who use their brain power to transform both the strategies in the nature. Of the Southern Freedom Movement, and C T. Vivian fits squarely in that conversation. Vivian and John Lewis also did some work together. Although I know that Louis was a student when he got involved with the movement. Yes, Vivian and Luis were comrades. They were both freedom riders. They both ended up in prison. Vivian spent several days in Parchman prison in Mississippi. And it's interesting because CT Vivian is often said of him. He was, of course, uh, appoint a proponent a disciple of non violence. C T. Vivian, it was often see it had the capacity to illicit violets from others. So C T. Vivian refused to call the jailers and Parchman prison. Which you know I'll make this comparison and I don't make it lightly because they would meet there. They would have study groups in this kind of thing while they were in jail in parchment Parchman prison in Portsmouth form Hell has a slight resemblance to Robben Island, in some ways in South Africa, and in this way, there is a direct resemblance. While they were in jail. They had classes. So while Mandela and Sisulu and all the more Tom Bo and all that crew in Robben Island with me in the lab stone quarry to discuss strategy and study So, too, with Vivian and Thea, others in Parchman prison do but CT Vivian wouldn't that he wouldn't call them, sir. So you kept getting beat CT. Vivian could make racist madder than anybody. And while he maintained his cool, they just felt compelled to try to harm you. I mean, this was a man. Who it seemed like He never lost his composure. Even when he was reigning, fiery, fiery Jeremy at these races, he wouldn't lose his composure. But that was a lot of people say the same thing about John Lewis. He wasn't the kind of Angry black man stereotype that so many think that people of color are. We wasn't and I think that's part of our challenge. In fact, in terms of how we think about the black freedom struggle And that is, you know, America likes to curate. It's black heroes, and I think it was John Lewis is in a dignity and self respect and his unshakable convictions, his faith and his religion. In the rightness of his cause. That not only was the great source of his strength but also in terms of how it presented itself became a more palpable image for White America to ingest in terms of thinking about freedom struggle. I think this is no accident. I think that we America freezes John Lewis on that bridge the Edmund Pettus Bridge in 1965 and freezes him before that on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, giving a speech at the march on Washington. And it frees the CT Vivian on this ship steps of the courthouse there in Selma with Jim Clark. And what that does. What will really doesn't do really is allow us to think about the complexity of those movements and the fact that there was a tapestry of leadership styles and convictions. But John Lewis had the courage of his conviction. And I think that's what that was his great strength. Howard University Africana studies professor. Great car. The first black secretary of the Smithsonian historian Lonnie Bunch, says he felt the loss of his friend Congressman John Lewis. On a personal level, We've been able to count on his vision. I've never counted his courage. We were able to count on him to make sure that somebody is fighting the good fight at all times. And so I feel Gal's a loss of that leadership. I feel the loss of a friend. I sort of feel both said Blessed lucky on worried about the future. What kind of things struck you in his career that people should know more about? Well, I mean, I think First of all, what His career tells us, it reminds us of the power of an individual to bring together other people. And through that community, you could make profound change. I was struck by first of all the fact that when I first saw him in the march on Washington, you know? Dr King seemed like an old man. And here was this young kid who was standing up on DH speaking and I remember thinking that he reminds me that I think I was, you know, 10 or something, but he reminded me that you can affect change, regardless of your age. And I think the leadership that he brought in his involvement. Incidences involvement in the freedom rides in the early sixties were just amazing. And what I think is brilliant is We think of John Lewis as sort of a lone voice own leader. But he organized student on Violent Coordinating Committee, which was really the group that began to bring together all the actions of young sort of people to try to change America. Anybody who doubts the courage of nonviolent protest is take a look at what happened on bloody Sunday on that bridge and self There is not a single person of any age group that is not talking about how important this man wass and.

"See or hear or feel or touch rate so I grew up hearing go. Stories grew up hearing stories about my grandmother, my maternal grandmother, who was born with what they call a. A call over her face rain, and so that meant that She has vision right that she has supposedly yes, supposedly the call. Yeah, right, right? Have you have other site right so I grew up hearing. Those stories I grew up hearing stories from my paternal grandmother about how her husband just showed up, her deceased husband showed up for night, and had a whole conversation with her so like these are the kinds of stories that I grew up hearing, and so I thought well. It would be interesting, too, because I love magical realism so much because I've always wanted to write it like this seems like this is an aspects of. The community and the culture that. Haunted Yeah. So I thought I want to incorporate this into this novel like this road trip, and so at first I thought well I'll just have ma'am and Joe. They'll have access the site. By this way of seeing the world seeing beyond the world, right, a grandmother and great grandmother and grandson, but then when I began to research parchman prison, which is where they were heading to. I didn't know anything about Parchman prison and I found out that children like Richie. Who is one of the two ghosts in the novel writes? A Ritchie is twelve years old I think he's a kid. And he was charged with he stole something when he was a kid, and he was charged with theft, and then his punishment was being sent to Parchman prison where he was. Basically reinstall saved because Parchman. Prison was a plantation so working plantation in the Nineteen Thirties, forties fifties right so he was sent to Parchman, prison, right the child twelve years old, and when I learned that kids like him existed I thought. I have to write about this kid. He has to be part of this novel, but I wanted to give him agency I wanted him to be able to act and react in. And I wanted to give him voice, and so because I wanted him I wanted to give him all these things that a child like him had been denied in life right, and so in order to do that I realized the only way I could do that was by making him a ghost because I wanted him to have conversations with Joe I wanted him to be able to. Live in move in. Make things happen in the president so I thought he has to be a ghost like I. Have the right about this kid, but I don't want to write about him in a flashback.

"Radio in lectures in American history we visit the Emory University classroom of Carol Anderson she teaches a class in the early nineteen sixties in this lecture she talks about the efforts of African Americans in Mississippi to register to vote she talks about movement leaders tactics and the opposition they faced from segregationists so as you know on Monday we ended with the freedom rides and those freedom riders were being funneled into Parchman prison as a way to try to hush them up to hush them up quietly without the cameras rolling because remember that visual image was absolutely essential for movement to be able to see the violence of Jim crow but that didn't mean that this moment was over and and Bobby Kennedy knew it and Jack Kennedy knew it so Jack Kennedy is giving his state of the union address and president Kennedy is all we are fighting for democracy and freedom and there is an opportunity for what is happening here on the global because we have all these people it was the middle of decolonization Africans Asians Latinos those nations are becoming getting three imperial bonds are loosening and he sees this as an incredible moment for freedom in the global south but he didn't mention the American south in this freedom struggle what kind of violence there but he needed that silence because what he was dealing with he had just come back from that Vienna summit remember the one that is his brother was really trying to get the freedom riders to like quiet out alone in will that be in the summer didn't go so well he met with Khrushchev and Khrushchev took him to school army in Atlanta this one pretty really what pretty and and it was kind of this fall he acknowledged that later on he thought did what he could do because he's gotten by on charm is he can just walk in there and charm no one else charm fellows charm not Tito Khrushchev chef who has been in the war Khrushchev who has survived Joseph Stalin hello Mari on the space right this is like yeah survived that so he thinks that he can just charm so he wasn't prepared so imagine going into a summit meeting with the head of the Soviet Union and you haven't done your homework have you ever walked in to okay received his order not and he just wasn't ready and afterwards he told a New York times reporter cruise ship beat the hell out of me yeah because there was the bay of pigs that debacle where the US it tried to invade Cuba after the dell Castro had taken over the island knocked out the T. stir and the bay of pigs boom went about as well as the Vienna summit so he's got stuff on him so he's trying to figure out how do I begin to rethink we talk about re re establish authority reestablish democracy reestablish strength as emanating out of the US after I've had the bay of pigs in Vienna well there was a problem with it wanting to reestablish was because you also had the slough Blowin up black folks struggling to be free and refusing to be quiet about Jim crow and the brutality of Jim crow so Bob we've got to figure out something and what Bobby figures out is that I've got to find a way to find the sweet spot that things that allows my brother the presidential for America to be calm to resonate that aura of strength democracy and freedom while also providing something to the civil rights folks so that they feel that they are being heard and their needs are being met what on earth could there be what could I do offer them said his soul who vital and essential but boring really boring so that no cameras will want to be there that nothing's gonna jump off and you know when he came up with red and black folks to vote in Mississippi okay so let's talk about that so this is where you know you've got this kind of this juncture between policy makers and what they think is happening and what is really going on on the ground because if he had really spend a minute thinking through it you're saying wait a minute so I'm seeing folks getting burned up because they're trying to ride a bus I mean just ride a bus then what am I going to see happening when they're trying to vote or even register to vote and remember so much of the power of the south was predicated on disenfranchisement massive disenfranchisement this is why you have the power of the southern Democrats in Congress because they're getting elected over and over and over and moving up the ranks in terms of seniority because they only have to be responsive to a small Brea of the electorate in the south and so you're pretty much almost assured of getting it re elected and re elected and re elected and re elected and re elected and re elected and reelected and so that kind of power don't give it up easily but a second okay we've got this we've got this and so he sets up an arrangement where the the IRS is going to to find a new organization provide tax exempt status for new organization dealing with with voting rights and he's going to try to funnel more of the big civil rights organizations under the heading of this organization this would be the voter education project and it sounds brilliant one paper because what again what is designed to do is to provide something that the civil rights workers want well apparently being boring enough because you're just registering folks to vote and you know you've got this image out registering folks to vote there's a table there's some registration cards right if you think about the way we think about it now on apple cry right now but you just do it but remember this is Mississippi remember we have the poll tax we have the literacy test we have the understanding close we've got election day terrorism we have the power sitting there too in fact reinforced massive disenfranchisement and so just registering folks to vote is not going to be that easy a lecture in American history professor Carol Anderson Emory University but this is the name of the organization the council of federated organizations and what he's going to do it is going to be tricky he's going to try to bring SCLC the southern Christian leadership conference and the NWA sleepy together now there is already a bit of aum the end of a Lacy P. big dog we've been here since nineteen oh nine thanks and and and you know and Roy Wilkins had been with the end of late early nineteen thirties and he waited his time did his work moved his way up the organizational ladder and finally in nineteen fifty five became the head of the N. double Lacy P. what else happened in nineteen fifty five Emmett till what was the parts the Montgomery bus boycott who was heading up the Montgomery improvement association Martin Luther king Martin Luther king so imagine you've waited twenty some years to be head of the civil rights movement leadership and with in a moment the year that you become the head there comes this guy out of Montgomery Alabama all of a sudden the media's flocking all around talking about who the leader the leader so there was this kind of rivalry there Wilkins would help king out of numerous jails don't get me wrong but we also have to take into account when we're talking about alliances were also talking about the kind of real deal stuff about people in organizations working together in the frictions that happen when you're dealing with people who believe that they should be here and somebody else and get something that they should have so Kennedy was also going to have to try to work through this relationship between SPLC in the end of the laci pretty but what he really wanted was to diffuse the power of the student shock troops coming out of sneak in court because students are fearless you think about that moment after that beating at the bus station and it looked like the freedom rides were over and core is just like and Diane nationalist next like we got this most students down you don't stop us simply because you're going to be somebody we're stronger than that democracy is stronger than that and the students kept coming Kennedy's looking up going okay so we got an apartment prison right now but that's only a stuffed cat Mister more students in parts we can even hold and we have got to figure out how to defuse the power in the energy of the students so something happened that was going to help with that conversation and that something was members of SCLC and Nick met with Bobby Kennedy at the department of justice because remember he's the Attorney General and they are demanding protection from the federal government for freedom riders and protection does not mean shepherding them into Parchman prison this means real protection and they are you know they're on it Arnold and he's coming back our and he's and and and what they're dealing with here you know so finally he's like look and you know when you get look and he's like look freedom rides are working not working am I clear but that's something that will work you want real civil rights you want real freedom you want real protection that comes from the boat let me see your fight for the vote we're gonna help you fight for the vote we have this wonderful organization that we've just created the council of federated organizations and we are going to help you in terms of providing protection and resources for you to go in the Mississippi and register black folks to vote what do you think well you you didn't answer that quite the way was hoping you dance this'll let me help you with that you know we've got this war going on right now you have deferments I'll see to that you keep your deferments you go to Mississippi you don't go to Mississippi you're going to Vietnam now I want you to think about that AS eighteen nineteen year olds right now I'm just assuming all about eighteen nineteen yeah like the twenty nine year old going yeah I'll take that Vietnam.
