  46. Evening With the Author: Jan Brogan presents The Combat Zone

    October 26, 2022, 7:00 PM - 8:45 PM
    @
    Whiton Room

    It was the most publicized murder of the 1970s. The victim was Harvard football star Andrew Puopolo, an Italian-American from the North End, then the local headquarters for the mob. Three Black men were charged with his murder in Boston's crime-ridden Combat Zone. Whispers of Mafia revenge grew so loud that many didn’t think there would ever be a trial. There were two. The suspects were tried during the height of the city’s busing violence, and the jury decisions may have said more about the city than the case, leaving the victim’s family to struggle with the very definition of justice. While many in Boston remember the murder, few realize the lasting impact the trials had on criminal justice, as they changed the way juries are selected by ending the once common practice of striking potential jurors based on race or ethnicity.

    This event will be held in person at the Library. To join us, please register online.
