I Am Troy Davis Community Book Club
On September 21st, 2011, the state of Georgia executed Troy Anthony Davis.
Troy Davis was executed in spite of the significant doubt about his guilt: there was no physical evidence linking him to the case, and seven of the nine primary witnesses eventually recanted or changed their testimony. His death serves as a painful reminder to all of us that our death penalty system is broken beyond repair.
To learn more about Troy Davis’s case and the flaws in the death penalty system it exposed, check out I Am Troy Davis, a book co-authored by Jen Marlowe and Davis’ sister Martina Davis-Correia.
This fall, in memory of Troy’s execution, groups around the country will be participating in the I Am Troy Davis Community book club. Let us know if you want to host a book club discussion in your area and NADP will help to spread the word! In addition to the compelling book, there is also a discussion and study guide produced by Equal Justice USA to help facilitate your conversation.
