Newton jury foreman David Harper -one of the key players to be featured in our film- was honored last Fall by the City of Oakland for risking his career and his life to serve on that ground-breaking jury. David Harper received three awards—one from the City of Oakland, one from the Peralta Community College District and one from Congresswoman Barbara Lee (certificate), who joined our film’s honorary committee at the same time.
In his subsequent newsletter following David Harper Day, new Honorary Committee member Peralta’s Chancellor Jowel Laguerre featured the event as "fabulous" recognition for Harper who was a Peralta instructor back in the 1960s. Co-Director/Co-Producer Lise Pearlman was proud to be in attendance for this well-deserved honor.
