Arkansas Week Special Edition: The Elaine Massacre

(A Sad Centennial) It happened 100 years ago. An event that stained Arkansas, but altered the course of American law. (Plantation 'Justice') It may have well been the worst, deadliest episode of racial violence in the nation's history. (An Uncertain History) To this day we cannot know for sure how many people were killed. (Trail and Appeal) Only that the vast majority were black and that a dozen men almost certainly would have died were spared only through a heroic and dangerous quest for justice. The massacre at Elaine. An Arkansas Week Special Edition.

Panelists: Grif Stockley, Attorney and Author; Dr. Brian Mitchell, Asst. Professor of History at UALR; Dr. Kyle Miller, Executive Director of the Delta Cultural Center.
