Marshall Law: The Life & Times of a Baltimore Black Panther

by Eddie Conway
£11.00   paperback  AK Press (2011)

Marshall Law: The Life & Times of a Baltimore Black Panther by Eddie Conway In 1970, the feds framed Eddie Conway for the murder of a Baltimore City Police officer. He was 24 years old. They threw him in prison, took him away from his family, his friends, and his organizing, and tried to relegate him to a life marked by nothing but legal appeals, riots and lockdowns, transfers from one penal colony to the next. But they failed.
 
Forty years later, still incarcerated for a crime he didn't commit, Eddie Conway continues to resist.
 
Marshall Law is a poignant story of strength and struggle. From his childhood in inner-city Baltimore to his political awakening in the military, from the rise of the Black Panther Party to the sham trial, the realities of prison life, escape attempts, labor organizing on the inside, and beyond, Eddie's autobiography is a reminder that we all share the responsibility of resistance, no matter where we are.
 
It also brings to light important details about the FBI's infiltration of the Black Panther Party. As Eddie makes clear, the FBI had already placed agents deep inside the Panthers' leadership well before Stokeley Carmichael's group in Canada was infiltrated, long before the brutal murder of Fred Hampton. It's all here ... and much, much more.
