Murder, Moonshine and King Cotton in the Bootheel: a two-part virtual series

Join us for a two-part virtual presentation: Murder, Moonshine and King Cotton in the Bootheel (part one will be June 2 at 6pm and part 2 will be June 9 at 6pm). The series covers a murder in Pemiscot County that collided with the New Madrid County Sharecropper’s Strike of 1939. It explores the history of the Missouri Bootheel, the struggles of the Depression, the justice system, and the unintended consequences of the “New Deal.” Register here for this event.
