In the Dark is gripping investigative storytelling. The Trials of Curtis Flowers presents the story of Curtis Flowers, a black man tried six times for the same crime – a quadruple murder in a small town in Mississippi – and a white prosecutor determined to have him executed.
The reporting team moved to Mississippi for a year to track down witnesses and documents. They undertook an extraordinary data journalism project – extracting race information about jury selection from hundreds of trials over two decades – and discovered that prosecutors in this district strike potential black jurors at a consistently higher rate than whites.

Order 9066: Japanese American Incarceration in WWII
On February 19, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, just months after Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. Some 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry were forced from their homes on the West Coast and sent to one of ten "relocation" camps, where they were imprisoned behind barbed wire for the length of the war. Two-thirds of them were American citizens.
Order 9066 is produced as a collaboration with the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History.
