Margaret Burnham and Sheila Moss Brown
Margaret Burnham, author of By Hands Now Known: Jim Crow’s Legal Executioners, with Sheila Moss Brown. Brown’s grandfather, Henry “Peg” Gilbert, was killed in jail in 1947, but an investigation into the circumstances of his death went nowhere, despite the FBI finding evidence of a jailhouse lynching.
