Synopsis: Mississippi Cold Case is the inspirational and incredible true story of African American Thomas Moore, a retired US Army Command Sergeant Major, and David Ridgen, a Canadian filmmaker who together return to Moore’s home-town of Meadville in Mississippi to directly confront the Ku Klux Klan more than forty years after they brutally murdered Moore’s brother Charles and his friend Henry Dee. The film, made over three years, results in the indictment and conviction of Klansman James Ford Seale for the crime in only the second-ever Federal Klan trial in US History.
