Parade tells the story of Leo Frank, a Jewish man falsely accused of murder in 1913 Atlanta. Northwestern University's Center on Wrongful Convictions (CWC) aims to reform the criminal justice system so that the events leading up to Leo Frank's untimely end are not repeated. CWC attorney Judy Royal discusses common causes of wrongful convictions and the CWC's most significant victories, plus meet an exoneree who benefited from CWCs work.
