Summaries

  • Over sixty years ago, a murder rocked Live Oak, Florida, and awakened the nation. Today, the ghosts still remain.

  • The "You Belong To Me" documentary tells the 1952 story of Ruby McCollum, an Black American woman who killed a prominent Caucasian American doctor in Live Oak, Florida, and the remarkable secrets and terrible truths revealed during her trial and incarceration. Her case haunted jurors and prosecutors for decades. Ruby McCollum was the wealthiest black woman in Suwannee County, Florida. Her husband, Sam, ran the local Bolita numbers racket. Was Ruby insane or was the killing of Dr. Clifford Leroy Adams the last sane act of a woman whose wealth and status could not protect her from the blind indifference and humiliations of the Jim Crow South? The ghost of Ruby McCollum still roams the streets of Live Oak, Florida.
