“It’S Never Too Late For Justice” – Racist Killings From The Civil Rights Era To Today says
African-Americans have been murdered with impunity in the Deep South for decades. Today's tragedies far too often become tomorrow's cold cases. They are part of a long history of unresolved racist killings.

The Cold Case Justice Initiative was founded in 2007 at the Syracuse University College of Law to reopen and investigate these cases and, where possible, advocate for prosecutions. CCJI investigators will draw the connection between the one-year anniversary this week of the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, subsequent police homicides of young Black men and women, and the hundreds of cold cases from the civil rights era.
