by Anthony Ray Hinton with Lara Love Hardin - Memoir, Nonfiction

In 1985, Anthony Ray Hinton was arrested and charged with two counts of capital murder in Alabama. Stunned, confused and only 29 years old, Hinton knew that it was a case of mistaken identity and believed that the truth would prove his innocence and ultimately set him free. But with no money and a different system of justice for a poor black man in the South, Hinton was sentenced to death by electrocution. As he realized and accepted his fate, Hinton resolved not only to survive, but to find a way to live on Death Row. For the next 27 years he was a beacon --- transforming not only his own spirit, but those of his fellow inmates. With the help of civil rights attorney and bestselling author of JUST MERCY, Bryan Stevenson, Hinton won his release in 2015.
