    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.
