Cherry Trial

A jury in Birmingham, Alabama, heard final arguments yesterday in the murder trial of Bobby Frank Cherry, the former Klansman accused of killing four black girls in a church bombing in 1963. Host Tavis Smiley gets an update from NPR's Debbie Elliott, talks with a victim's family member, and talks with Mark Potok, Editor of the Southern Poverty Law Center's Intelligence Report, a quarterly magazine that investigates the radical right.
