Ghosts of Missisppi (1996)

This drama was based on the the 1994 trial of Byron De La Beckwith, the white supremacist accused of the 1963 assassination of civil rights activist Medgar Evers. Whoopi Goldberg played Medgar's widow Myrlie Evers, who gets Beckwith (James Woods) tried — for his third time — and finally convicted for her husband's murder.
