|Abstract: ||From the video archives of the Cornell Law School Heritage Project. The interviewer is Alfred C. Aman (Tuttle clerk 70-72); the videographer, Thomas R. Bruce. This video covers Elbert Tuttle's reflections on the Downer and Herndon cases, lynching, and how Georgia?s statutory penalties for rape and insurrection were structured to foster discriminatory application of the death sentence. (Duration 20:13) The initial phase of this project was sponsored by a generous grant from the law firm of Sutherland Asbill and Brennan LLP.|
