Both Black Americans and Native Americans have been repeatedly betrayed by America’s legal system. The murders of five Black men by a well organized confederation of powerful white men on the campus of the Posey County, Indiana courthouse on October 12, 1878 and the beheading of a Black man on the ranch of a powerful white man on the Osage Indian Nation before Oklahoma became a state are intricately intertwined in Unanimous for Murder. The corruption of the justice systems of both jurisdictions has lead to multiple denials of human rights. Judges John Eagleson of Posey County, Indiana and Bernice Spotted Horse O’Reilly of Osage County, Oklahoma must now confront the sins of the past as they attempt to afford closure and justice in the present.
