Radio Chronicles – The San Francisco Eight: June 2009

There used to be nine of them, but one of the men, John Bowman, passed away in 2006. In January 2007, the remaining eight men who were Black Panthers, were charged for their involvement in the 1971 murder of San Francisco police officer John V. Young, supposedly based upon the “discovery” of new evidence: DNA matches, fingerprint matches. But do these alleged matches really exist? Hear stories and personal accounts of San Francisco 8 members Herman Bell, Ray Boudreaux, Richard Brown, Hank Jones, Jalil Muntaquim, Richard O'neal, Harold Taylor, Francisco Torres, others about these charges and the upcoming preliminary haring.
