author: DEBRA TATE target: Governor Brown of California

PETITION: ASK GOVERNOR BROWN TO DENY MANSON FAMILY MEMBER BRUCE DAVIS’ PAROLE.

Despite popular belief that all crimes have equal punishment, that is simply not the fact. Despite the extreme brutality of these particular crimes committed by a band a serial killers the possibility of parole has now become imminent, due to the extreme liberal attitude of our political leaders. The precedent that would be set by one of these people’s release not only ensures other Manson family members release but also becomes the basis for many others to follow. We cant let time and distance from the crime influence our reaction. Even though these people are ancient they can and do affect the minds of a younger lost generation. No different now than they did in the sixties. I need your help.

Thanks,

Debra Tate

Statement from Debra Tate:

"For many years now I have wanted to write a book about my sister, Sharon Tate, as I felt it was my responsibility to help preserve her considerable photographic legacy. The idea for this book was not to present a traditional biography, but to carefully assemble photographs and pair them with recollections from myself, Sharon’s friends, costars and work associates, and even Sharon herself. I hope by doing this, the book will provide her legions of current and future fans with a well-rounded sense of who Sharon really was—of the gentle and supremely unique spirit that existed beyond her screen persona."

Sharon Tate: Recollection is a one-of-a-kind celebration of Sharon’s life and career, her influence as a fashion icon throughout the world, and in effect presents a sociological portrait of the 1960s—its youth culture, the sexual revolution, the rise of independent cinema, and Hollywood’s changing studio system. In this impressive photo book, Sharon Tate’s story emerges through quotes and short essays—recollections—by her sister, Debra Tate, as well as by those who knew and have been influenced by her. What emerges from these pages is a stunning tribute to an unforgettable life.
