Description

It was the trial that tore Atlanta apart, causing a resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan and the formation of the Anti-Defamation League. The Knights of Mary Phagan recounts the trial of Leo Frank, the Jewish factory manager falsely accused of murdering a 13 year-old girl in 1913. For an America still healing from a conflict that defined a nation, the Leo Frank case was the wake-up call that took 70 years to answer. Jesse Waldinger’s critically acclaimed stage play tells the riveting story surrounding the one-time office boy who came forward in 1983 to finally disclose what he saw on April 26th 1913.
