On April 3, 2015, Anthony Ray Hinton walked out of the Jefferson County Jail a free man after 30 years on death row for a crime he did not commit. He was one of the longest serving death row prisoners in Alabama history and among the longest serving condemned prisoners to be freed after presenting evidence of innocence.
His memoir The Sun Does Shine: How I Found Life and Freedom on Death Row (2018) is an extraordinary journey through the traumas of imprisonment, the loss of freedom, and the power of hope. Destined to be a classic memoir of wrongful imprisonment and freedom won, Hinton’s evocative memoir tells his dramatic 30-year journey that highlights how race, poverty and a flawed legal system condemned an innocent man whose family’s love and faith never wavered.
