As a part of the national Live from Death Row tour, Wesleyan will be host to Lawrence Hayes, a former Black Panther and death row prisoner, who spent 20 years in prison for a murder he did not commit:
Since his release in 1991, Lawrence Hayes has been an outspoken opponent to the death penalty. In addition to Hayes’ perspective, we will also hear from two current death row inmates live via speakerphone, John Booth-El, who has been on death row in Maryland for 25 years and Stanley Howard, a former death row prisoner and torture victim who is still imprisoned in Illinois and is a contributor to the New Abolitionist. This event is co-sponsored by WesAmnesty, Ujamaa, 200 Church, Malcolm X House, Wesprep and Women of Color House.

When blind housewife Susy Hendrix mistakenly comes into possession of a doll being used to transport heroin, three con men attempt to regain it from her. As the game of wits between Susy and the men intensifies, so does the tension. It all comes to a chilling climax when Susy smashes every light bulb in the apartment, plunging everyone, including the audience, into a pitch-black nightmare. Are you sure you’re not afraid of the dark? Do not see this one alone…
