What can you say about a middle-class family man that went from celebrated activist to "the most hated lawyer" in America?
That's the part where their dad went from middle-class family man to celebrated radical activist -- when he took on the establishment (the Chicago Seven, Attica, the stand-off at Wounded Knee) -- to “the most hated lawyer in America” -- after defending people accused of rape, murder, organized crime and terrorism.
Not something every kid can say about their dad -- or would want to.
The Philadelphia premiere of William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe starts at 3:30 p.m. at The Painted Bride Arts Center at 230 Vine Street, followed by a Q&A with Emily Kunstler. Tickets are $20; $15 for First Person Arts members.
Thanks to Phawker for the tip.
Bonus for Pa. lawyers: The program has been approved for two hours of ethics credit. (Yes, it may seem like an oxymoron, but even lawyers have ethics. Some of them, at least.)
