Lise Pearlman was an undergraduate at Yale during the murder trial of Black Panther Party Chairman Bobby Seale in New Haven and has lived most of her adult life in Oakland, where the 1968 Huey Newton murder trial took place. Join us as she discusses her recently released book, The Sky’s The Limit: People v. Newton, The REAL Trial of the 20th Century?

"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 Scheck ('71)

This event is generously hosted and sponsored by Robert Stein ('70) of Stein & Lubin LLP. The book will be available for purchase, and Regent Press will donate $5 from every book sold at the event to The Innocence Project.
