Anthony Ray Hinton - Special Zoom Event

Join us as we welcome:

ANTHONY RAY HINTON

to Lehman College, for a special Zoom event.


Anthony Ray Hinton survived for 30 years on Alabama’s death row. His story is a decades-long journey to exoneration and freedom.

In 1985, Mr. Hinton was convicted of the unsolved murders of two fast-food restaurant managers based on the testimony of ballistics experts for the State who claimed that the crime bullets came from a dusty revolver found in Mr. Hinton’s mother’s closet. Without the benefit of a competent expert to challenge the State’s theory (Mr. Hinton’s lawyer hired a ballistics expert who was blind in one eye), an all-white jury convicted Mr. Hinton and he was sentenced to death.

After years of petitioning to have the revolver re-analyzed, three independent experts concluded that the bullets could not have been fired from his mother’s revolver. With the assistance of the Equal Justice Initiative, led by attorney Bryan Stevenson, Mr. Hinton was freed in 2015.

Since his release, Mr. Hinton has traveled the world sharing his story and discussing the changes that need to be made to prevent similar injustices from happening to other people. In 2018, Mr. Hinton published
The Sun Does Shine: How I Found Life and Freedom on Death Row, which was selected for Oprah’s Book Club and is a New York Times bestseller. In 2019, he was awarded an honorary doctorate from St. Bonaventure University.

Faculty and Staff are invited to bring students!

The Women's Studies Program First Spring Lecture Series Presentation
The Women's Studies Program presents the First Spring Lecture Series entitled "The Michael Field Diary Project: Archival Transcription in the Classroom" by Olivia Loksing Moy, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, English Director, English Honors Program on Wednesday, February 19, 2020, at 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm in Carman Hall, Room 221.

This lecture presents the joint faculty-student research between Professor Olivia Loksing Moy (English Department) and The CUNY Rare Book Scholars, a group of Lehman College undergraduates who transcribed over five hundred pages of the journals of the nineteenth-century writers Michael Field.

Surprising to many, Michael Field was not a male author from the Victorian period, but rather the joint pseudonym for the aunt and niece couple, Katharine Harris Bradley (1846 - 1914) and Edith Emma Cooper (1862 - 1913). Bradley and Cooper were romantic partners, housemates, and co-authors who produced over forty collections of poems and verse plays at the height of British Aestheticism.  Recounting their interactions with notable artists of the period, including Oscar Wilde, William Butler Yeats, Algernon Charles Swinburne, Charles Ricketts, and Walter Pater.
