Description

This is the 1961 arrest photo for Mark Lane as a Freedom Rider in Jackson, Mississippi. 34 years old at the time, he was arrested with Percy Sutton. Both men not only represented Harlem CORE but many of the Freedom Riders, as well. He was the attorney for the very first arrests of Harlem CORE members in the 1963 City hall protests.

An New York State Assemblyman at the time, Mark Lane went on to become a notable attorney for and witness to the Civil Rights and Anti-War movements.

In the 1968 presidential election, Lane ran for vice-president on the Freedom and Peace Party ticket with Dick Gregory.
He also wrote 'Murder In Memphis' with Gregory about the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Lane represented James Earl Ray, King's assassin, before the House Select Committee on Assassinations inquiry in 1978.
Lane also represented Jim Jones' Peoples Temple and was one of the witnesses who survived the Jonestown killings.

He is considered one of the leading authors on the John F. Kennedy assassination. His books include:

- Rush to Judgment
- A Citizen's Dissent: Mark Lane Replies to the Defenders of the Warren Report
- Arcadia.
- Plausible Denial: Was the CIA Involved in the Assassination of JFK?
- The Strongest Poison
