Reconciliation in Mississippi (2011)


David Ridgen’s 2011 film Reconciliation in Mississippi breaks new ground in both spurring and documenting a process of reconciliation between African American Thomas Moore and Charles Edwards, a Ku Klux Klansman that helped to brutally murder Thomas’s brother Charles and his friend Henry Dee in 1964. Reconciliation in Mississippi, the follow-up to Ridgen’s Mississippi Cold Case, changes the way people will view justice in civil rights era cases and captures the extraordinary endurance of one man’s love for his brother and the conversion of long held hatred into a hymn of redemption.
