Abstract:

This is the story of a Black Panther murder trial and what it tells us about the changing nature of justice in America. In 1970, Bobby Seale, Chairman of the Black Panther Party, and Ericka Huggins, another member of the party, were accused and brought to trial by the state of Connecticut on charges of conspiracy to commit murder. In the course of the trial, Yale University was brought to a controversial involvement in the case; the jury selection process was pushed to new and fantastic limits in a defense attempt to have the black revolutionary defendants judged by a jury of their peers; and the jury ultimately played out its role in a surprising manner in the last act of an intense courtroom melodrama. Author Donald Freed tells the strange story of the jury selection and recounts the experiences of Bobby Seale and Ericka Huggins. After delineating the legal strategies of defense lawyers Charles Garry and Catherine Roraback, Freed formulates the implications of this trial for the black liberation movement and the future of justice in America.--Adapted from book jacket.
