Two Towns of Jasper

In 1998 in Jasper, Texas, James Byrd, Jr., a black man, was chained to a 
pick-up truck and dragged to his death by three white men. The town was 
forever altered, and the nation woke up to the horror of a modern-day 
lynching. In Two Towns Of Jasper, two film crews, one black and one 
white, set out to document the aftermath of the murder by following the 
subsequent trials of the local men charged with the crime. The result is 
an explicit and troubling portrait of race in America, one that asks how 
and why a crime like this could have occurred.
