The untold story of Oscar Grant's father:
Where racism, mass incarceration and police brutality collide

Guest speaker: Samuel Morris, Oscar Grant III's cousin

As millions around the country flock to theaters to watch the acclaimed film, 'Fruitvale Station', there is little said about the role of Oscar Grant's father in his life. But stepping forward for the first time to tell this tale is Oscar Grant's cousin, Samuel Morris, who will discuss the wrongful imprisonment of Oscar Grant's father for the past 27 years and the outrage felt by many who see an innocent relative held behind bars while the man who clearly murdered Oscar walks free after a miniscule 11 month jail sentence.

Read the Liberation News' article that discusses the Oscar Grant Jr. case: http://www.pslweb.org/liberationnews/news/untold-story-oscar-grant.html.

Join the Party for Socialism and Liberation as we discuss the story of Oscar Grant's father and the connections between economic oppression, mass incarceration, and police brutality.
