“This is Not Over Yet” – Parade
Music and Lyrics: Jason Robert Brown
In this musical based on a true story, Jewish factory manager Leo Frank is accused of the rape and murder of a young girl and put on trial in 1913. When the case is reopened after a guilty verdict, Leo and his wife sing this stirring song, relishing in the fact that it is not over yet. Sadly, the innocent man was hung by a lynch mob shortly after, but it truly wasn’t over as Leo Frank was officially pardoned on this day in 1986.
