Voices from Death Row
By Michael Braxton, Tessie Castillo and Lyle C. May
All of us are more than our worst crime, but less than our highest ideal. Inside: Voices from Death Row takes us on a journey into the hearts and minds of four men on Death Row brave enough to share the truth of the American criminal justice system. At times hopeful, at times heart-breaking, this exploration of what it means to be human sets out to prove that while we are shaped by our past, we are not defined by it. Grace and redemption can be found in the most unlikely places.
Inside: Voices from Death Row is a collection of personal narratives by four incarcerated men on North Carolina's Death Row-Michael J. Braxton, Lyle C. May, Terry Robinson, and George T. Wilkerson-with essays by editor Tessie Castillo, a foreword by Sister Helen Prejean (Dead Man Walking), and an afterword by journalist Phoebe Zerwick (Beyond Innocence: The Life Sentence of Darryl Hunt).
Inside: Voices from Death Row includes QR codes which lead to audio recordings of each author reading one of their essays, as well as discussion questions. Royalties from the sale of the book go to the North Carolina Victims Assistance Fund.
