Sunday Scholars: The People vs Leo Frank

Hosted By: Congregation Kol Ami

Learn the history of one of the most notorious and highly publicized trials in U.S. History, the case of “The People v. Leo Frank,” presented by Jerry Rishe. Part of the Sunday Scholars series.

Leo Frank was a northern educated Jew convicted of the rape and murder of Mary Phagan, a 13-year-old girl who worked in a pencil factory in Atlanta where Frank was superintendent. Before Frank was lynched there was a controversial question of commutation and an attempt on his life while in custody. After Frank was murdered, photographs of the lynching were phenomenal sellers, the publisher responsible for widespread dissemination of an anti-Semitic magazine during Frank’s trial was elected as a Georgia State Senator and the Ku Klux Klan was reborn. Please join us for a fascinating & thought provoking presentation of this case, and the implications for Anti-Semitism today.
