From Death Row to Freedom: My Story of Wrongful Conviction and Quest for Social Justice, A Talk by Shujaa Graham

The Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership, and Public Policy presents:

From Death Row to Freedom: My Story of Wrongful Conviction and Quest for Social Justice, A Talk by Shujaa Graham


In 1973 Mr. Graham was framed for the murder of a prison guard at the Deuel Vocational Institute in Stockton, California, and was sent to San Quentin’s death row.

After multiple appeals, in 1981 Mr. Graham was found to be innocent and was released from prison. Since that time, he has worked to raise awareness of issues related to the death penalty, and the criminal justice system.

Mr. Graham will be discussing his experience on death row and in the criminal justice system, and the impacts these institutions have on contemporary American culture.


This event is free and open to the public. Lunch will be provided.
