The F-B-I is looking at reopening dozens of cold cases involving racially motivated slayings across the South in the 1950s and '60s.
An announcement could come as early as Tuesday, according to a law enforcement official who spoke with the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the plans have not yet been finalized.
The Southern Poverty Law Center submitted a list to the F-B-I last week of 74 potential unsolved murders that involved white-on-black violence.
Thirty-two of the deaths happened in Mississippi. The others were in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Kentucky and New York.
