LIVE FROM DEATH ROW!
City College – 137th St. & Amsterdam – NAC Ballroom

These are America’s condemned, who bear a stigma far worse than “prisoner.” These are America’s death row residents: men and women who walk the razor’s edge between half-life and certain death.- Mumia Abu-Jamal, Pennsylvania death row prisoner, from his book ‘Live from Death Row’

Over 3,500 men and women sit on death row across this country. This national tour will bring you their voices and their struggles.

The tour features death row prisoners speaking live via speakerphone. Including:

MUMIA ABU-JAMAL
Pennsylvania death row prisoner, author of Live from Death Row, We Want Freedom and numerous other books
KEVIN COOPER
California death row prisoner who came within 3 1/2 hours of being executed before he won a stay of execution
TROY DAVIS
On death row in Georgia and came within hours of execution in 2007 before he won a stay
STANLEY HOWARD
Former death row prisoner and torture victim still imprisoned in Illinois; contributing writer to the New Abolitionist
…and more!

Also speaking at City College:
Lawrence Hayes, former NYS death row prisoner
