Film Screening and Discussion on the Death Penalty
Presented by The ACLU of Virginia, Virginians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty, the Norfolk Catholic Worker
Love Lived on Death Row This new documentary explores very personal stories about forgiveness, healing, and the battle for clemency. Four orphaned Syriani siblings whose father was sentenced to die for the 1990 murder of their mother lived with hate, anger and confusion as their father lived on North Carolina's death row. But in 2004, they collectively decided to visit him in prison and a miraculous story of reconciliation unfolds. (90mins) www.lovelivedondeathrow.com.
Following the film screening, Director/Producer Linda Booker will talk about the making of the documentary and her interests in the death penalty and domestic violence.
Also speaking will be death row exoneree Michael Ray Graham, Jr. and Ryan Nixon, a murder victim's family member.
This event is free and open to the public.
