FREEDOM FRIDAY: JURY NULLIFICATION ON PATRIOT’S LAMENT RADIO SHOW

Share

This week’s Freedom Friday video features Alaska radio show “Patriot’s Lament” with several guests, including FIJA State Contact Joshua Bennett, discussing Lysander Spooner’s work on jury nullification, including its application to criminal charges against abolitionists accused of aiding fugitive slaves in violation of the law of the era. This video is just the audio track from the show coupled with a still photo so you can easily listen while working on something else.

You can learn more about Lysander Spooner’s work in our online Library, or by purchasing The Lysander Spooner Reader or an excerpt of Spooner’s essay Trial by Jury from our Media Catalog.
