The first black mayor elected in the Mississippi delta, Eddie Carthean tried to make positive changes in his hometown of Tchula, Mississippi.  He was then framed for the murder of a political rival.  The Christic Institute team took the case, proved Mayor Carthean’s innocence, and also broke a key witness on the stand, getting him to confess to the murder.
