Huey P. Newton Talks About Jury Selection

About This Item

KRON-TV news footage from August 12th 1968 with reporter Gordon Graham in Oakland, featuring an interview in jail with co-founder of the Black Panther Party Huey P. Newton. Newton is being tried for the murder of Oakland police officer John Frey and explains why he and attorney Charles Garry believe his jury is not made up from a fair cross section of the Alameda County community: "This assumes that you're in a homogeneous society, as far as values are concerned. And we contend that there's a contrast and a large difference between the values of the blacks in the ghetto and the white establishment." Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.
