The trial of O.J Simpson captivated a nation, and called into question racial politics, legal system, and media in America. Though physical evidence was stacked against Simpson, his legal team put up a defense that played on longstanding tensions between the LAPD and the African American community in Los Angeles, claiming that Simpson was a victim of racial discrimination by the police. Interviews with members of both the prosecution and defense teams, including Marcia Clark and Barry Scheck, shed light on one of the most controversial and dramatic trials in recent history.
