Cambridge MA: The issues with today’s criminal justice system are human rights issues. On Thursday, April 25, an evening with Death Row exoneree, Anthony Ray Hinton, will give our community the opportunity to hear his extraordinary story of faith and hope sustained through the darkest times. Holy Trinity Armenian Church of Greater Boston presents The Dr. Michael and Joyce Kolligian Distinguished Speaker Series to illuminate this stunning story. Please join us in the Charles and Nevart Talanian Cultural Hall, 145 Brattle Street, at 7:00 p.m., for an exceptional evening.
Anthony Ray Hinton wrote the captivating memoir, The Sun Does Shine: How I Found Life and Freedom on Death Row. Mr. Hinton’s book is a New York Times Best Seller and was Oprah’s Book Club Summer 2018 Selection. He will share his story of wrongful conviction, death-row survival and his decades-long journey to exoneration and freedom. Now free after nearly 30 years, Mr. Hinton will discuss the changes to the criminal justice system that need to be made to prevent these types of injustices from happening to other innocent people. He will also remind us of the power of faith and forgiveness, for in his words, “I’m just trying to be a little tiny light in God’s world.”
The event is open and free to the public. A reception and book signing will follow Mr. Hinton’s talk, and books will be available for purchase. For further information, please contact the Church Office, 617.354.0632.
