More on the film::”For more than 50-years the stabbing death of 21-year old Carol Jenkins has impacted the lives of African Americans and Indiana University students in Central Indiana. At the same time the City of Martinsville has struggled to change its national reputation as a racist former Sundown Town.
For 33-years Carol’s case went unsolved until a series of reports by Investigative Reporter, Sandra Chapman prompted a woman to come forward with a stunning secret. She told Chapman: “If the girl had a yellow scarf and was killed with a screwdriver my father could be the killer.” It was a story she also relayed to police.
But the arrest of Kenneth Richmond, failed to bring full justice to Carol’s family or to remove the stain on Martinsville.
Then in 2017, in the wake of a nation’s unrest, both the rural communities where Carol lived and died faced a reckoning with race relations. The outcome now: an emerging legacy of hope for Carol Jenkins.
This compelling, historical account builds on Chapman’s years of investigative work, and the recollections and of exclusive key witnesses all as the U.S. Department of Justice tries once more to bring complete justice to Carol’s case.”
