Call Me Phaedra: The Life and Times of Movement Lawyer Fay Stender

Fay Stender with Huey Newton

Judge and author Lise Pearlman brings to AAMLO her well-researched book on prisoner rights activist and movement lawyer Fay Stender. Stender achieved amazing legal successes in criminal defense and prison reform, known for defending both Black Panther Party leader Huey Newton and revolutionary prisoner George Jackson, before she ultimately refocused with similar zeal on feminist and lesbian rights.
