Leo Frank was a Jewish-American factory manager who gained notoriety for being falsely accused and convicted of the murder of 13-year-old Mary Phagan in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1913. Others supported the verdict. In 1915, Georgia's governor, John M. Slaton, commuted Frank's death sentence to life imprisonment, citing doubts about his guilt. This case became a symbol of anti-Semitism and injustice in the United States. Sue Addelston will explore the significant attention and controversy around this case.
