Killing the Messenger
Tune in Wednesday, Feb. 29 at 1 p.m Eastern when the next broadcast of Studio SPJ will feature a talk with the author of a new book on the assassination of Oakland journalist Chauncey Bailey.
Our guest will be Thomas Peele, an investigative reporter for the Bay Area News Group, whose new book is titled, "Killing the Messenger - A Story of Radical Faith, Racism's Backlash, and the Assassination of a Journalist.
Bailey, the 57-year-old editor of the Oakland Post, was shot to death on Aug. 2, 2007 as he walked to work. The book tells the story of Bailey's murder, the history of the Black Muslim movement and the Oakland cult that his killers belonged to.
Peele became one of the lead reporters for the Chauncey Bailey Project - a consortium of news organizations, freelance journalists, educators and students who sought to investigate the shooting.
The Sigma Delta Chi Foundation of the Society of Professional Journalists contributed a $20,000 grant toward the Project.
In June 2011, a jury convicted Yusef Bey IV, former leader of Your Black Muslim Bakery, on charges that he ordered Bailey's murder.
