Anthony Ray Hinton served 30 years on Alabama’s death row for a crime he did not commit. Mr. Hinton was arrested and charged for two capital murders that evidence clearly showed he had no part in, but as a poor black man in the rural South, he was sentenced to death by electrocution. For three years, Mr. Hinton lived on death row in silence. But when he resolved to do more than just survive, he became a beacon of hope for his fellow inmates. In April 2015, Mr. Hinton was exonerated and released with help from civil rights attorney, bestselling author of Just Mercy, and Equal Justice Initiative founder Bryan Stevenson.

Mr. Hinton’s bestselling memoir The Sun Does Shine: How I Found Life and Freedom on Death Row was an Oprah Book Club choice in 2018. Today, Mr. Hinton is the Community Educator for the Equal Justice Initiative and speaks internationally on criminal justice reform and the power of forgiveness. His story of grace, resilience, and hope inspires all who hear it.
