A Talk by Gautam Narula, Author of “Remain Free”
When Georgia death row inmate Troy Davis was executed in 2011, despite serious doubts about his guilt, he was the most well-known death row inmate in the world. Drawing upon his close friendship with Davis and years working on the case, Gautam Narula shows how the Troy Davis case exemplified the common issues with the death penalty in Georgia: racial and income bias, arbitrary application, and an inflexible legal and political system that may allow innocent people to be executed.
