Journey to justice by Johnnie Cochran( Book )

4 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was the sobering experience of these earlier cases that fueled the inner turmoil of a man whose deeply felt sense of duty to the law and to his people compelled him to take a leading role in the case of People vs. Orenthal James Simpson, one of the greatest morality plays of our time - a play that has forever altered our perceptions of race relations in America. In Journey to Justice we learn about the man behind the sound bites, the zealous advocate for such diverse clients as Michael Jackson and Reginald Denny, the white truck driver attacked in the aftermath of the Rodney King verdict. In Journey to Justice, Cochran reflects not only on how these events shaped his legal philosophy but also on the contexts within which these courtroom dramas were played out

"On the day before the 'Million Man March, ' 'Meet the Press' presented a frank interview with four of the nation's most prominent black leaders. The program examined the concern of black men for the plight of Black America and the need for their more responsible participation in solutions. At the same time, it highlighted the diverse approaches among black leaders, dispelling any conventional image of unity on such issues. Participants included the most famous trial lawyer of the year, Johnnie Cochran, in his first TV interview not related directly to the O.J. Simpson trial; the most noted U.S. black civil rights leader, the Reverend Jesse Jackson; one of the two black Republican congressmen, Gary Franks (Conn.); and a noted conservative activist and author, Robert Woodson."--Excerpt from 1995 Peabody Awards entry form. Tim Russert opens with an announcement that Louis Farrakhan is not available for his scheduled interview. Gwen Ifill is then included in the panel discussion about the march and Farrakhan's role. Clips from Farrakhan's speeches open the discussion. Topics also include race relations since the O.J. Simpson trial, affirmative action and proposed Republican welfare reforms, and Colin Powell as a Presidential candidate. Jack Ford reports on guerrilla attacks in Lebanon, Iraq's election of Hussein as President for 7 more years, bus hijacking in Moscow, vandalism at La Guardia Airport in New York, preparations for the Million Man March, and proposal to abolish the Commerce Dept.

Black and white and read all over : an analysis of narratives in the O.J. Simpson murder trial by Martin Larry Lastrapes( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The thesis examines the O.J. Simpson murder trial and analyzes the racial narratives that affected its outcome and the way it is perceived by the American public. By examining four books about the trial written by lawyers who served on the case, the analysis focuses on how race functions within each of the reconstructed narratives, as well as within the framework of the U.S. criminal justice system. The author argues that racial narratives affect how and why people can see the same event differently, a prime example of which is the O.J. Simpson murder trial. Representations of Mark Fuhrman, his role in the O.J. Simpson trial, and how these are affected by racial narratives are also discussed. The author concludes that the O.J. Simpson murder trial presented an opportunity in which issues concerning race, race relations, and ideologies about race could be openly discussed

A lawyer's life by Johnnie Cochran( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most famous lawyer in America talks about the law, his life, and how he has won. Johnnie Cochran has been a lawyer for almost forty years. In that time, he has taken on dozens of groundbreaking cases and emerged as a pivotal figure in race relations in America. Cochran gained international recognition as one of America's best - and most controversial lawyers - for leading 'the Dream Team' defense of accused killer O.J. Simpson in the Trial of the Century. Many people formed their perception of Cochran based on his work in that trial. But long before the Simpson trial and since then Johnnie Cochran has been a leader in the fight for justice for all Americans. This is his story. Cochran emerged from the trial as one of the nation's leading African-American spokespersons - and he has done most of his talking through the courtroom. Abner Louima. Amadou Diallo. The racially-profiled New Jersey Turnpike Four. Sean "P. Diddy" Combs. Patrick Dorismond. Cynthia Wiggins. These are the names that have dominated legal headlines - and Cochran was involved with each of them. No one who first encountered him during the Simpson trial can appreciate his impact on our world until they've read his whole story. Drawing on Cochran's most intriguing and difficult cases, A Lawyer's Life shows how he's fought his critics, won for his clients, and affected real change within the system. This is an intimate and compelling memoir of one lawyer's attempt to make us all truly equal in the eyes of the law
