Say their names out loud to learn their stories. This multiplatform project shows that even today, for the victims of racist murders from the American past and their bereaved families, there is still no justice.

Un(re)solved draws on more than two years of reporting, thousands of documents and dozens of first-hand interviews. The interactive documentary tells the stories of four lives cut short, four cases examined under the Emmett Till Unsolved Civil Rights Crime Act, a law mandating the investigation of racially motivated killings from the days of the civil rights movement. So many years later, has justice been served, or will the next of kin be left disappointed for a second time? Whatever the case, in this extraordinary environment, Roman Ducksworth Jr., Peter Francis, Jimmie Lee Jackson and Alberta O. Jones are fleetingly brought to life in the collective consciousness through image, text, audio and archival material. Get to know their stories by saying their names out loud.

Un(re)solved was part of Storyspace 2022, an exhibition in the Neude Library.
