About Injustice Files

In February 2007, the FBI officially launched a new investigative effort called the Civil Rights-Era Cold Case Initiative, which was tasked with taking a fresh look at racially-motivated homicide investigations that occurred prior to 1970. Since then, over 100 cold cases have been identified for this initiative.

In an effort to bring attention to these important investigations, critically-acclaimed documentary filmmaker, Keith Beauchamp, the host of Investigation Discovery's The Injustice Files, combs through records; interviews family members, witnesses and investigators; and pieces together the known facts of each case. He attempts to interview potential suspects and individuals who may know who was responsible for these murders, sometimes confronting them in their driveways after attempts to contact them for interviews prove unsuccessful.
