April 14-26, 2015

From April 14th – April 26th, Frazier staff are teaming up to re-frame the Booth manhunt within a 21st century context. For twelve days in April 1865, a nation anxiously awaited news of the greatest manhunt in American history: the frenzied search for Abraham Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth. Now, 150 years later, Frazier’s Programming Department re-imagines that search using social media platform, Twitter. Drawing upon headlines, first-person accounts, and court testimony, the story is told in “real time” in reports of 140 characters or less!
