Murder in Mobile

A documentary short film about race, murder, and one family’s search for the truth seventy years later. In 1948, in Mobile, Alabama, a black man named Rayfield Davis was beaten to death by a white man who was not prosecuted. The crime was forgotten until 2012, when Northeastern Law’s Civil Rights and Restorative Justice Project (CCRJ) assigned student Chelsea Schmitz ’13 to investigate. Watch this remarkable story of justice served at long last.
