In 1965, Marie Reeb watched the evening news coverage of Bloody Sunday with her husband Jim Reeb. Jim, a white Unitarian minister, went to Selma to support the cause after the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., called for clergy to come to Alabama. Jim was murdered soon after. His murder was never solved, even though it was at the center of the civil rights movement and a catalyst for the Voting Rights Act. The Reeb generations, seen here, an old photo of the family and Marie’s granddaughter, Leah Reeb Varela, photographed for NPR’s podcast White Lies, unraveling the story of Jim’s murder.
