A Crime on the Bayou tells the story of Gary Duncan, a Black teen who was charged with assault for simply touching a white teenager. His case was taken up by a white lawyer, Richard Sobel. The resulting landmark Supreme Court decision, Duncan v. Louisiana, 391 U.S. 145 (1968), led to the Sixth Amendment right to a jury trial being applied to the states. Please join the Martin Luther King, Jr. Research and Education Institute in an in-person screening of the film followed by a special Q&A with Mr. Duncan, who will be joining virtually. This event is co-sponsored by the Stanford Center for Racial Justice, African and African American Studies, the Center for the Comparative Study of Race and Ethnicity, the Stanford Department of Art and Art History and the Stanford Criminal Justice Center.
