Start: Thursday, March 7, 2024 7:00PM
End: Thursday, March 7, 2024 8:30PM

Anthony Ray Hinton, exonerated death row inmate and author of "The Sun Does Shine: How I Found Life and Freedom on Death Row," will speak at Randolph-Macon College. His remarks are part of the Watkins Lecture Series, March 7 at 7 p.m. in Blackwell Auditorium at Randolph-Macon's Center for the Performing Arts.

Hinton spent 30 years on Alabama's death row, wrongly convicted of murders he did not commit based on forensics linked to a dusty revolver found at his mother's house. His onerous legal journey to be freed took decades, even after new evidence was presented. Through the work of Bryan Stevenson's Equal Justice Initiative, the U.S. Supreme Court eventually reversed the lower courts and a new trial was granted, where forensics experts were unable to match crime-scene bullets to Hinton's mother's gun. Even then, it was years before the charges were dropped and Hinton was released in April of 2015. Hinton's story is portrayed, in part, in the motion picture Just Mercy.
