Description

Join us for a joint conversation and book release* event with photographer Ilka Hartmann and author Lise Pearlman. Pearlman’s new book, Call me Phaedra: The Life and Times of Movement Lawyer Fay Stender, examines the rise and success of thee Bay Area civil rights lawyer. The saga of this feminist icon will fascinate those who lived through the tumultuous 1960s and 1970s. Stender became a tireless advocate for society’s most scorned and vilified defendants from the Rosenberg espionage case in the early 1950s to Black Panther leader Huey Newton and revolutionary prisoner George Jackson.
