Seeking Justice: The Leo Frank Case Revisited
Opens February 26, 2016
On View Through August 2016

This exhibition explores the racially charged and tragic events surrounding the murder of 13-year-old Mary Phagan in Georgia in 1913 and the lynching of Leo Frank, the Jewish factory superintendent accused of her murder. The case that has sparked more than a century of debate is illuminated through interviews with descendants of key players. Seeking Justice brings new insights to the events that led up to these murders as well as the granting of a posthumous pardon for Leo Frank in 1986.

The exhibition is organized by The William Breman Heritage Museum, Atlanta, GA.

Funding for the New York presentation of this exhibition is made possible through the generous support of Nancy Fisher, the Charles and Mildred Schnurmacher Foundation, and other philanthropic supporters.
