Since 1989, the stories of Jerry Mitchell, investigative reporter for The Clarion-Ledger, have helped put four Klansmen behind bars. They include the assassin of Mississippi NAACP leader Medgar Evers, the man who planted the bomb that killed four girls in a Birmingham church in 1963 and the man who orchestrated the 1964 killings of three civil rights workers, commonly known as the Mississippi Burning case. For his work, Mitchell has received more than 30 national awards, including a so-called genius grant from the MacArthur Foundation. He is currently writing a memoir for Simon & Schuster titled Race Against Time.
