  • The Defense of Lolita Lebron: An Interview With Conrad Lynn

    The Defense of Lolita Lebron: An Interview With Conrad Lynn

    Lolita Lebron was arrested in 1954 for carrying out an attack on the U.S. House of Representatives with fellow Puerto Rican Nationalists Andres Cordero, Rafael Cancel Miranda, and Irving Flores. Lebron was a strong symbol in the Puerto Rican Nationalist movement for being a female who insisted on taking full blame for orchestrating the action, rather than getting a lighter sentence as a mere participant. Most of the tape is made up of an interview with Lebron’s attorney Conrad Lynn, who goes into depth about the trial, his defense of Lebron, the Puerto Rican Nationalist movement, and Lebron’s personal life.

When most people think of Cabrini Green, they think of the drugs and the crime and every other negative thing you can think of. When I think of about it, I think about all the wonderful people who have meant so much to me in my life. …I’m an artist, and what I try to do is to share these people with the world, so that they’ll see that Cabrini Green is more than just the images you see in the media, but is real people.
