Recent graduate shines investigative light on 75 year old Civil Rights cold case

Who killed Pvt. Felix Hall? Now, thanks to the work of Alexa Mills, this 75-year-old cold case—America’s first known lynching on a U.S. military base—is finally getting the attention that it deserved some three-quarters of a century ago. Mills, MA’16, dedicated more than a year of her life to piecing together the facts of the case as part of her course work in the School of Journalism’s Media Innovation program, which is designed to empower working journalists to become digital storytellers.
