Gilbert King's The Execution of Willie Francis is an incisive look at the events that led to the botched first attempt at the execution of African-American teenager Willie Francis. Convicted of killing a white man, his employer, in 1946 Louisiana, the mobile electric chair meant to kill him failed to do so, only torturing the young man as electricity surged through his body. The execution was rescheduled to take place six days later, but public outcry and the actions of a local lawyer delayed this second execution as the case was argued all the way to the Supreme Court, highlighting the issues of race, justice, and capital punishment.
