Over the course of a single day on death row, six men divulge their personal inheritances of violence, racism, mental illness, poverty - and sometimes surprising love. Based on writings and years of conversations with prisoners throughout the U.S., Count invites us into a stark, fluorescent otherworld where the condemned struggle in the face of scheduled death to re-envision what it means to live fully.
There will be an associated panel discussion on the death penalty on Thursday, March 2 from 4:30 to 6:00pm at the Center for the Study of the American South (410 E. Franklin Street, at the corner of E. Franklin and Battle Lane).
It will feature Professors Frank Baumgartner and Isaac Unah (UNC Political Science); Jennifer Thompson (author of Picking Cotton and President of Healing Justice); and Lynden Harris (Director of Hidden Voices).
