On the 50th anniversary of the Black Panther Party, Lise Pearlman’s new book, American Justice on Trial: People v. Newton, compares the explosive state of American race relations in 1968 to race relations today with insights from key participants and observers of the internationally watched Oakland, California death-penalty trial that launched the Panther Party and transformed the American jury “of one’s peers” to the diverse cross-section we often take for granted today.
