Cold Case Initiative
Syracuse University College of Law's Cold Case Justice Initiative (CCJI) held a series of activities April 23-24 in Atlanta for the families of victims of unsolved murders in Mississippi and Louisiana dating back to the Civil Rights Era. The feature event Saturday was a panel discussion at Atlanta's Ebenezer Baptist Church, which was followed by a free concert by Grammy Award nominee Mavis Staples. The "Never Too Late for Justice" events were organized by CCJI co-directors Paula C. Johnson, SU professor of law, and Janis McDonald, the Bond, Schoeneck & King Distinguished Professor in the SU College of Law.
