The Ballad Of Botham Jean: Botham Jean was a promising young Black accountant who dreamed of returning to his native St. Lucia to become Prime Minister. Those dreams were cut short in 2018 when he was shot inside his Dallas apartment by a white female off-duty police officer. As his family mourned, the murder ignited protests and sparked a media frenzy. This senseless tragedy is retold by those closest to the case, with gripping, emotional accounts from Jean's family, including his mother Allison Jean, father Bertrum Jean, sister Allisa Charles-Findley, as well as those who worked with the family to bring justice to Botham, including lawyer Lee Merritt and prosecutor Jason Hermus. Perhaps the most heartrending account comes from 18-year-old Brandt Jean, who mourns Botham's death while wrestling with his anger against his brother's killer and rises above his grief with an astonishing act of forgiveness – a courtroom embrace that echoed around the world.
