Author Talk | JAN BROGAN | THE COMBAT ZONE: Murder, Race, and Boston’s Struggle for Justice, | Hybrid Event Online Online

Join us in person or on zoom for a talk by Award Winning Author and Journalist, Jan Brogan.  Set within the context of a racially divided Boston at the height of busing, The Combat Zone is a true account of a brutal murder, two flawed trials, and the not so delicate balance between justice and revenge. It tells the story of an annual Harvard ritual that sent forty football players into Boston’s crime-plagued red light district for a “last drink, together,” the death of a heroic 21-year old cornerback who tried to save a friend, and a criminal justice system that needed to change.
