Tales of The Grim Sleeper

Tales of The Grim Sleeper

In 2010, Lonnie Franklin Jr was arrested in South Central Los Angeles after a 25-year murder spree. His arrest, completely accidental, was followed by accusations that the killings went on for so long because the victims were all black women. Tales of the Grim Sleeper looks into how it was possible for all this to happen, and gives voice to a people who have been dealt a grave injustice that extends far beyond this case.
