Thomas Peele and Martin G. Reynolds: "Killing the Messenger"

When: Thu., Feb. 9, 7 p.m. 2012

The unraveling of the Your Black Muslim Bakery empire -- and the killing of journalist Chauncey Bailey in a vain attempt to cover it up -- was the most gripping East Bay true-crime story of the twentieth century's first decade. Now, in Killing the Messenger, the seamy underbelly of the Bey family fiefdom gets a major investigative treatment courtesy of award-winning reporter Thomas Peele. Peele will be at Diesel (5433 College Ave., Oakland, 510-653-9965 or DieselBookstore.com) on Thursday, Feb. 9, at 7 p.m., and at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism (121 North Gate Hall, 510-642-3383 or Journalism.Berkeley.edu) on Monday, Feb. 13, at 5:30 p.m. Free
