In the Dark is a great podcast, which is ending, but is an incredible trip on how racism plays a part in the justice system of the South. The case made its way to the Supreme Court this past July.
Curtis Flowers, from Mississippi, endured nearly 23 years behind bars, six trials, four death sentences and, most recently, months of house arrest for murders he always maintained that he didn’t commit.

In a 7-2 ruling, the Supreme Court reversed Curtis Flowers' conviction. The justices concluded that the white district attorney, Doug Evans, who had prosecuted the case from the beginning, had violated Flowers' constitutional rights by intentionally removing African-Americans from the jury at the sixth trial, in 2010. It was the fourth time Flowers had his murder conviction reversed. The majority opinion was written by Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
