The Visiting Room Project
April 6, 20235:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Sponsor(s)Center for Criminal Justice, Clinical Programs, Black Law Student Association
The event is a screening of clips from the Visiting Room Project, a digital experience that invites the public to sit face-to-face with people serving life without the possibility of parole to hear them tell their stories, in their own words. Attorney Dwayne Betts, a MacArthur Genius Fellow and founder of Freedom Reads, will deliver the keynote. There will be a panel discussion with people who were interviewed by the Visiting Room Project and are now free, the father of the victim in one of their cases and the co-creator of the project, Marcus Kondkar.
