Race To Execution explores the deep and disturbing link between race and the death penalty in America. Following the stories of two Death Row inmates – Madison Hobley of Chicago, Illinois and Robert Tarver of Russell County, Alabama – the film interweaves their compelling personal stories together with groundbreaking scholarship. Revealing how race infects our capital punishment system, Race to Execution invites dialogue into the larger community about this systemic crisis within our justice system.

The film screening will be followed by a discussion including panelists: 

Donald Caster, Ohio Innocence Project (OIP)
Dean Gillispie, OIP Exoneree
