Making an Exoneree — Stories of Wrongful Convictions
WHEN: Thursday, May 11, at 6pm. The in-person event starts at 6pm with hors d'oeuvres, and the program will begin at 6:30pm.
WHERE: Robertson Hall, Princeton University campus, Princeton
Four lives shattered by wrongful convictions. Four stories in search of justice.
Join Making an Exoneree for the premiere of student-made short documentaries that reveal the facts—and falsehoods—of wrongful conviction cases from around the country.
Twelve Princeton undergraduate students in the Making an Exoneree course have dedicated themselves to uncovering the truth about these cases. Their short films unravel the wrongful convictions of Muti Ajamu-Osagboro, Ivery Dorsey, James Richardson, and Patricia Rorrer. These four individuals have spent, combined, more than 95 years in prison. The students hope that by sharing these stories, they can help correct injustice and bring innocent people home from prison.
Each team of three will present their documentary, followed by messages from prison and an audience Q&A.
Join in person! 6pm, May 11: Robertson Hall, Princeton University
