Watch You Belong to Me: Sex, Race and Murder in the South
- 1 hr 28 min
In 1952, Ruby McCollum killed a white man. He was a respected doctor with secrets, and she was the wife of a racketeer in Live Oak, Florida. Unfortunately, she was also a black woman living a desperate life in the Jim Crow South. Her trial for murder became a fiasco, and turned into an opportunity for politicians to make an example of a woman's struggle. Some say she was at her wit's end, and was protecting her own honor. Others say she was completely insane, and had the heart of a killer. Only survivors living today can reveal the details of this mystery and blemish on one town's dark history.
