Race, Innocence & the End of the Death Penalty: Serving Life

March 7, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm


Hidden Voices brings to the stage dramatic readings co-created with men currently sentenced to die in prison. Serving Life offers audiences the opportunity to both hear these stories and to respond to the men who live them, thereby creating a community call and response. A discussion with project leaders and prison mental health professionals will follow the performance.

The UNC Department of Political Science is pleased to host this distinguished speaker series in conjunction with POLI 203: Race, Innocence, and the End of the Death Penalty. The speakers will address one of the most important policy puzzles our state and nation face: Why is the death penalty fading away, and should it be abolished? The series is made available through the Richard J. Richardson Distinguished Professorship.

This event is free, open to the public, and includes the opportunity for audience Q&A.
