The C.O.W.S. Last Man Standing: The Tragedy and Triumph of Geronimo Pratt Part 10

Thursday, May 6th 8:00PM Eastern/ 5:00PM Pacific

The Context of White Supremacy hosts the 10th study session on Jack Olsen’s Last Man Standing: The Tragedy and Triumph of Geronimo Pratt. Olsen is a White man, and a prolific author. He wrote for Sport Illustrated during the turbulent 1960’s, and penned a celebrated series examining black athletes and Racism. The magazine also credits Olsen with writing one of the best biographies on boxing icon and attempted counter-racist Muhammad Ali. Last week, Olsen detailed Pratt’s frustration with being caged while his wife Ashaki struggled to parent two children by herself. Pratt’s hopes were repeatedly dashed when White judges rejected his appeals for a new trial. Their dismissals generally included insistence the Julius Butler was not an FBI informant, and that Pratt had received a “fair” (although not perfect) trial. He continued to invest his time constructively while confined, he gained seniority among other inmates and worked to keep his mind and body healthy.
