Jack Rice Speaks with Jerry Blackwell

Jack Rice is joined by Minneapolis attorney Jerry Blackwell, who was named Minnesota attorney of the year in 2020. He was one of the prosecuting attorneys during the Derek Chauvin trial. We’ll talk about his experience on that case. But mainly we discuss Blackwell’s efforts to successfully posthumously pardon an African American man, Max Mason, who over 100 years ago in Duluth was convicted without evidence of rape that led to lynchings in the city.
