Excellent and terrible at the same time. I was struck by the inability of the Selma individuals to think about the family almost like an institutional narcissism. I have lived in the Montgomery area for over 25 years and this series helped clarify the deep resistance to truth I have experienced. Thank you so much and love to the Reeb family

I honestly enjoyed every bit of this series. It was so well done. I am so glad that I listened. Andy and Chip, you did a great job with telling this story and making me feel so connected. At times I could actually feel like I was there in the stories. Great job!!

Amazing series! I visited Selma around this time last year for the first time and you can still feel all the emotion in that city. From there we went on to the slavery museum in Montgomery and talk about eye opening. This story is what so many need to hear in this day and age, thank you for doing the hard work and not giving up. I can't wait to hear what's up next!

I enjoyed the whole series but this episode was the best of all. I'm intrigued to learn more about the History of what happened in Selma. Extremely powerful and emotional episode. Thank you.

What a great series. Thanks for this Andy and Chip! I am concerned about the theory that "I don't need to be ashamed because I didn't do anything." that is akin to the rhetoric around the current generation not atoning for slavery. You should be ashamed that a family member killed a man for no reason, but not crippled by it.
