Anthony Ray Hinton from the Equal Justice Initiative will deliver a public lecture. Hinton spent more than 30 years on death row in Alabama for a crime he didn't commit, before being exonerated by a legal team led by Bryan Stevenson. His story was featured in the film "Just Mercy." Hinton is also the author of The Sun Does Shine: How I found Life, Freedom, and Justice.
