**POSTPONED**: Film "American Justice on Trial"--The Yale Connections
**POSTPONED** Lise Pearlman ('71) will share a trailer from her documentary project on the historic 1968 Huey Newton murder trial that revolutionized a "jury of one's peers," and also reveal the Yale connections to the underlying story and the film.


 Talk and showing of film trailer by Hon. Lise A. Pearlman (ret.) Yale '71 on the relevance today of a 1968 death penalty trial that challenged entrenched racism in the justice system -- "American Justice on Trial: People v. Newton" directed by two-time Academy Award nominee Robert Richter. She will highlight the many Yale connections to the underlying story and to the making of the film. Pearlman is the prize-winning author of the book on which the project is based.
