KPIX Eyewitness news report by Ben Williams from September 1968 featuring an interview with Huey P. Newton from his jail cell. Newton claims he hasn't received a fair trial, and that the court precedings so far have reflected the racist attitude of the power structure at large. Newton also talks about his future, including a political campaign for the 7th congressional district. Also includes views of people holding a vigil for Huey P. Newton, and shots of a man waving a flag outside the Alameda County Courthouse with the words "Free Huey" painted on it. Remastered, edited and catalogued for the web by Shira Peltzman.
