The Unburied Past: Resurrecting the Leo Frank Case

September 7, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

In 1913, 13-year-old Mary Phagan was found brutally murdered in the basement of the Atlanta pencil factory where she worked. The factory manager, a college-educated Jew named Leo Frank, was arrested, tried, and convicted in a trial that seized national headlines. When the governor commuted his death sentence, Frank was kidnapped and lynched by a group of prominent local citizens.

110 years later, Steve Oney, author of And the Dead Shall Rise: The Murder of Mary Phagan and the Lynching of Leo Frank, will discuss why this chilling story of murder and revenge still matters — and why we’re still talking about it.

This is an in-person event at the Museum of the Southern Jewish Experience on September 7th, 2023 at 6 Central.
