Blood in the Water is gripping account of one of this nation’s most famous civil rights protests–one that ended in tragedy with law enforcement shooting scores of unarmed men and severely wounding more than a hundred others….

No one has ever been held accountable for these killings.

Blood in the Water…a shocking and timely story that will make Americans reconsider all that they think they know about their criminal justice system then and now…
