I Am Troy Davis Book Discussion with Author, Jen Marlowe

October 12, 2014 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join us for a discussion with Jen Marlowe, the author of I Am Troy Davis.

The I Am Troy Davis Community Book Club is marking the 3-year anniversary of Troy’Davis’s unjust execution, and intends to deepen and widen the discourse about the human impact of the criminal justice system and the death penalty. Through hundreds of intimate book discussions across the country, Troy’s story and all it exposes about the criminal justice and death penalty systems, and the racism that undergirds them, will reach and impact thousands of new people. The recent police killing of Michael Brown in Fergusonhighlights how critically important it is to challenge the fact that society values certain lives, and devalues others. We hope this nation-wide Community Book Club action will be a part of the urgent shift we need to make as a nation, so that every life in the United States is given equal value, and treated with equal dignity.
