You Belong to me: The Ruby McCollom Story

Ruby McCollum, born Ruby Jackson (August 31, 1909 – May 23, 1992), was a wealthy married African-American woman in Live Oak, Florida arrested and convicted in 1952 for killing a prominent white doctor and state senator–elect. She was limited in her testimony during her trial and prohibited by the judge from recounting her allegations that he repeatedly raped her, and forced her to bear his children. She was sentenced to death for the murder of Dr. C. Leroy Adams. The sensational case was covered widely in the United States press, as well as by international papers, but McCollum was subjected to a gag order. Her case was appealed and overturned by the State Supreme Court.

We have discussed her and will be watching the documentary during this program.

Dinner will be served.
