Mr. Hinton was wrongfully convicted of the 1985 murders of two fast food managers in Birmingham, Alabama, and spent 28 years on Alabama's Death Row until his lawyer Bryan Stevenson won his case.

NOTE: Reserved seating is still available in the ballroom where the presentation will be livestreamed: Register

This is the keynote event of the One Book, One Michiana initiative, and is sponsored by the African American Community Fund.  In 1983, Bryan Stevenson, a 23-year-old law student, was starting an internship that involved assisting inmates on Alabama’s death row. This led Stevenson to found the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI), a nonprofit law office in Montgomery dedicated to defending the poor, the incarcerated, and the wrongly convicted.

Anthony Ray Hinton is a former EJI client who spent 28 years on Alabama's Death Row. He was released in 2015 with Bryan Stevenson as his lead attorney (his case is detailed in the book, Just Mercy). Hinton is a current community educator at EJI, with a bestselling book of his own titled, The Sun Does Shine - How I Found Life, Freedom, and Justice on Death Row. Hinton will deliver an emotional presentation about his story and the need for the abolition of the death penalty. 

The auditorium has a seating capacity of 250 people. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, beginning with doors opening at 6:00 p.m. to those who have pre-registered. At 6:15p.m., seats that are not occupied by those who have pre-registered will be available to anyone.
