Victims seek justice for US race crimes

Victims of race crimes from the civil rights-era continue to look for justice although many cold cases have been closed.

    In the United States, the Cold Case Initiative launched several years ago, brought hope to the families of people killed during the civil rights era.

    But most of the cases have since been closed leaving some relatives disappointed and angry.
