From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Murder in Harlem (also released as Lem Hawkins Confession) is a 1935 race film directed, produced and written by Oscar Micheaux, who appears in the film. It is a remake of Micheaux’s 1921 silent film The Gunsaulus Mystery, and the plot concerns the plight of an African American man who is falsely accused of the brutal murder of a white woman.[1][2] Both films were inspired by the 1913 murder of Mary Phagan.[3]
