The Sun Does Shine: How I Found Life and Freedom on Death Row

On our show today, we’ll have a one-hour special, sharing the story of Anthony Ray Hinton. The Alabama native spent nearly 30 years on death row for crimes he did not commit and finally won his release in 2015. Well spend part of the show with Hinton to discuss his remarkable book about his experiences and about racism in the criminal justice system called The Sun Does Shine: How I Found Life and Freedom on Death Row. Then, the Equal Justice Initiative put together a short video with Hinton about his life in death-row and without his mother after being exonerated. Its called Lynching in America: Anthony Ray Hintons Story.
