Mississippi Justice (New Release)


Produced by NMHS Unlimited, the film is factually based on documented trial records, extensive research, and interviews as it depicts an extraordinary case filled with unexpected twists and turns!


Mississippi Justice is an educational film project based on actual events that occurred in 1951 in Mississippi’s rural Pike County. The storyline centers around a 20-year-old black female, Ms. Hattie Lee Barnes, who shot and killed a young blue-eyed, six-foot-tall, white male from a local prominent family. Charged with murder, Ms. Barnes was appointed the county’s newest, youngest, and most inexperienced public defender, Mr. Joe Pigott. In a span of only 20 days, Ms. Barnes was served an indictment, entered a not guilty plea, and found herself on trial for murder.
