The Sky's the Limit People V. Newton, the Real Trial of the 20th Century?


Product Description
Product Details


Lise Pearlman's account of the tinderbox setting enveloping the trial of Huey Newton perfectly captures how much can be at stake for an entire community even a nation in a single trial and the exceptional role played by twelve everyday men and women we trust to decide each case. -- Barry Sheck, Director of the Innocence Project "Personal Correspondence"
Having lived through the turbulent late '60s as a rare female criminal lawyer in the Alameda County Public Defender's office and then on my own representing protesters arrested during the 1969 People's Park confrontation, I found this account of the 1968 Newton murder trial and its political context accurate and fascinating. -- Penny Cooper, Member of the State Bar of California Trial Lawyers Hall of Fame "Personal Correspondence"
I was born in Oakland and lived there during the highly polarizing 1968 prosecution of Black Panther Huey Newton. Lise Pearlman has written a powerful account of both the Huey Newton trial and its place in our country's political history. I truly believe that had Newton received a death sentence, we would not have Obama in the White House today. -- Morrie Turner, Award-winning syndicated cartoonist and author and creator of "Wee Pals," the first i "Personal correspondence"
