Anthony Ray Hinton to present at Simpson College


On Tuesday March 28, 2023, Simpson College is honored to present an evening with Anthony Ray Hinton. The presentation will take place live and in-person at 7 p.m. in Hubbell Hall, Kent Campus Center, on Simpson's main campus in Indianola, Iowa.

Anthony Ray Hinton was the 152nd person exonerated from death row since 1983. One of the longest serving death row prisoners in Alabama history and among the longest serving condemned prisoners to be freed after presenting evidence of innocence. Hinton wrote about his experiences, in the New York Times Bestseller The Sun Does Shine: How I Found Life, Freedom, and Justice. Today he works as a Community Educator at the Equal Justice Initiative, tirelessly and powerfully advocating for the abolition of the death penalty.

In conjunction with the presentation, Hinton will do a 30-minute book signing where a bookseller will be available for on-site purchases.

This event is live and in-person and will not be recorded. No registration required.
