D. Lowell Jensen (ret.), the prosecutor in the state’s death penalty case against Black Panther Huey Newton, and constitutional law scholar Associate Professor Margalynne J. Armstrong for an interactive discussion of the case that forever changed jury selection in American courts, and highlighted the power of diversity to create a credible justice system.
