Episode InformationThis 4-part series is about the true story of Beulah Mae Donald, who took down the Ku Klux Klan after the brutal murder and lynching of her son. Michael Donald was just nineteen when he was found dead, hanging from a tree in Mobile, Alabama, on March 21, 1981. The leaders of the local Black community suspected it was a Klan lynching, but local law enforcement was slow to acknowledge the murder was racially motivated. When the investigation stalled, Beulah Mae, and local Black leaders refused to back down until Michael’s killers and the hateful organization they belonged to were brought to justice.
