In honor of Black History Month, I wanted to tell another story of a wrongful conviction. But this one is even worse. It’s not a mis-identification, it is the straight up racist framing of an innocent man. And because Monroe County, Alabama officials were so determined to frame Walter McMillian, the real murderer of Ronda Morrison will probably never be brought to justice.
