Special Event -- Betsy Carr, Gea Carr and Paul Harris discuss "Bad: The Autobiography of James Carr"
7:00pm - 8:00pm

DIESEL and Three Room Press welcome Betsy Carr, Gea Carr, and Paul Harris to the store for reading and storytelling to commemorate the reissue of Bad: The Autobiography of James Carr

Tuesday, June 14 at 7:00pm

Bad is the harrowingly brutal and unapologetic story of the notorious African-American career criminal who went straight out of Compton to a reformatory after burning down his school at the age of 9. Originally released in 1972, Bad remains a harsh indictment of the American penal system and a primer for the seeds of institutionalized racism in this country. It goes where no other book has ever gone before, as did the life of James Carr. After years in and out of prison (mostly in) Carr befriended George Jackson (Soledad Brother) in Folsom Prison where they fought their way to a position of strength along the radical stream of the 1960s. As Carr notes, “I’ve been struggling all my life to get beyond the choice of living on my knees or dying on my feet. It’s time we lived on our feet.” A book that strips the system bare, Bad is revealing as a part of Black Panther history, and as a telling document in the battle for prison reform that continues to this day. It includes a new introduction by his daughter, Gea Carr, and an afterword by his widow, Betsy Carr.   

James Carr evolved from being one of the most notorious rebels in the California penal system of the 50s and 60s as leader of the infamous Wolf Pack to a comrade of famed Soledad Brother George Jackson and early member of the Black Panthers. Carr was murdered on April 6, 1972 outside his home in San Jose.

Betsy Carr at Diesel A Bookstore in LarkspurBetsy Carr has devoted her life to political activism and nonprofit organization work. She initially met James Carr through her work on civil rights and prison reform, serving on the Central Committee of the Soledad Brothers Defense Committee; they later married. In more recent years, she has worked on ecological drives, homeless and affordable housing initiatives, and technology programs for underprivileged communities. 

Gea Carr at Diesel A Bookstore in LarkspurGea Carr works as a realtor in San Jose, where she is a fourth generation resident of the Rose Garden district. She has been a model and professional actor for more than twenty years. In addition, she is an executive member of the Board of Directors of The YWCA of Silicon Valley, on the Foundation board of Abraham Lincoln High School, and is a co-founder of the San Jose Park Foundation’s Rose Garden Home Tour.

Paul Harris at Diesel A Bookstore in LarkspurPaul Harris worked with the San Francisco Community Law Collective for 16 years, during which time he was described as one of the best criminal defense lawyers in America. He is author of the renowned treatise, Black Rage Confronts the Law, which details the history and reasoning behind this controversial defense strategy, and examines the effect of social and economic hardship and deprivation on human misconduct. A past president of the National Lawyers Guild, he is Charles Garry Professor of Law at New College. He received his J.D. from the University of California at Berkeley.

Friday Night Jazz -- Rue Manouche
6:00pm - 9:00pm

Come enjoy Friday Night Jazz, featuring Rue Manouche

Rue Manouche is a Gypsy Jazz group founded in San Francisco in 2009 by guitarist Vic Wong and singer Michel “Saga” Michelis. The band was described by critic Jim Burek as "one of the most original Gypsy Jazz & Musette bands in San Francisco." The ensemble features Michel Michelis, vocalist; Jeff Magidson, lead guitar and concertina; Evan Price, violin; and Isabelle Fontaine, rhythmic guitar and washboard. 

Rue Manouche plays music in the style of Gypsy Jazz or Gypsy Swing, made famous by Jean "Django" Reinhardt in the 1930s. Because its origins are largely in France, it is often called by the French name, "Jazz Manouche." Django was foremost among a group of Gypsy guitarists working in and around Paris in the 1930s through the 1950s. Many musicians in this style worked in Paris in various popular Musette ensembles.

Rue Manouche and its lead vocal singer give a French wink to the show!
