Carolyn Bryant Donham

When a gal is in her eighties and the statute of limitations has expired, it’s a good time to try to clear your conscience. So Carolyn Bryant Donham decided to let everyone know that, of course, she falsely accused a man, a false accusation that got him killed.

“For us, Carolyn Bryant — her name at the time — will remain merely a footnote in history, yet a modern testament to the racist and iniquitous legal system that has long refused to give African-American men fair judgment.” (Dahleen Glanton.)
