One thought on “Murder in the Model City: The Black Panthers, Yale, and the Redemption of a Killer

  1. Stuart

    After reading Douglas Rae s previous book, City , I was pretty stoked to learn that he d co authored another book about my hometown, New Haven, CT Moreover, it was about the semi legendary days surrounding the trial of Erica Huggins and Bobby Seale, a time I d heard occasional mentions of from long time New Haven activists while growing up While the authors describe their project well, bringing rich detail to figures on both sides of the political divide that had previously been reduced to caric [...]

    Fascinating true story about the murder of a Black Panther associate who was thought to be a spy by his fellow Panthers and as a result was executed It s both a tragedy, involving the fall of a once promising local youth leader in the New Haven black community, and his subsequent redemption in prison and return to society The book gives you a full flavor of the radical 60s, complete with characters like Abbie Hoffman and Bobby Seale the latter who was put on trial for conspiracy to commit the mu [...]

    I found this treatment of the Panther Trial in New Haven, from hindsight of 33 years, to be very complete Paul Bass has interviewed most of the important characters and provided a much complete picture than I realized at the time I was attending college in the Northeast at the time of the Mayday demonstration and came down to take a look Don t remember the demonstration on the Green but I do remember Allen Ginsburg in one of the Yale courtyards, chanting I think I do remember, much clearly, th [...]

    Rae and Bass begin with the story of New Haven s first pig trial involving the alleged relations between George Spencer and his porcine friend I initially thought I might have accidentally picked up Weird US Volume II Indeed it is an incongruous inclusion Presumably the point was that this represented the first example of white, Puritan oppression within the Elm City, foreshadowing subsequent histories Yet, as they fast forward to 1969, it s not about black versus white but rather an expose of t [...]

    I really enjoyed this book It was interesting to me having met a few of the people mentioned in the book while I was in school Also, it was interesting to read about New Haven during that time since it had changed so much by the time I lived there It was unapologetic in that it told the story from what accounts the authors gathered from multiple sources and sometimes that meant it was harsh and abrasive in the depiction of the behavior of some of the people in the book This was one of the rare n [...]

    I read this book for a class I took called Race and Violence in the American City The book was written by my professor Paul Bass and another Yale professor in the Political Science Dept and School of Management, Douglas Rae It was a well written book and for anyone interested in New Haven and Yale history during this turbulent time, this is a great book As a Yale student, I thought it was fascinating to read about how the university was during the 60s, under the leadership of Kingman Brewster, w [...]

  7. Michael

    An interesting book about a murder involving the Black Panthers The connections to Yale and the New Haven Police Department were also interesting, and the book details the early careers of Billy White, Sr and Nick Pastore, both of whom established large networks for intelligence purposes.Warren Kimbro, convicted of murder, goes on to change his life dramatically, both while in prison and after his release This is a story of redemption, showing the true character of Kimbro, and how someone can ea [...]

    One of several books about the Black Panthers and Black Power that I ve read recently However limited the accomplishment of this one in terms of storytelling it tells of an infamous murder of a Party member it is a valuable book to read, as have been several others such as Peniel Joseph s, in setting in a enlightened context the accomplishments of Black Power Those now can be seen to have been, or to have become, as great as those of the Civil Rights Movement in some respects, they have been ev [...]

    I had the good fortune of discussing this book with the author after I read it and that was really eye opening This is a great book for anyone who has lived or grown up in New Haven The corruption that people claim of the PD and city government today is nothing compared to 1971 Very eye opening.
