Episode Summary

Race to Execution
Independent Lens examines the controversy of racial discrimination within America's judicial system. Statistics prove that a black defendant who murders a white victim is thirty times more likely to face a death penalty than a white man or woman who kills a black victim. This film follows the journeys of two men on death row, Robert Tarver in Alabama and Madison Hobley imprisoned in Chicago.moreless
