(10/7/72) An updated program on Ruchell Magee: before his trial. Discusses the abuses of and biases held against Ruchell by the ‚justice‚ system, such as Magee‚Äôs alleged low IQ. Magee continually demands to defend himself in court, despite not having a ‚proper education‚ which has turned him into a symbol of self determination and he has inspired many to question the rule of law in an unjust system and ‚their belief in their right to rebel.‚ Ruchell‚Äôs reason for wanting to defend himself because he knows that any participant in the law is a part of the racist system, one way or another. (9/2/72) Program includes clips of Magee speaking. Broadcast of Mark Schwartz speaking with Frances Justice, Larry Justice‚Äôs mother, and Linda Brown, friend of Earl Gibson, who are two of the San Quentin Six. Digitization made possible through a Recordings at Risk grant from the Council of Libraries and Information Resources.
