Standing On Love - Art Exhibit
The James E. Cheek Learning Resource Center in collaboration with Hidden Voices presents: Standing On Love: (A Component of Serving Life: Revisioning Justice).

Often, we imagine those on death row are the “worst of the worst.” Yet, only 1% of murders in the US resulted in a death sentence. Are those living on death row really the “worst” or are they simply those with the “worst” contributing factors: The least competent lawyers, the lowest income levels, the most aggressive DA’s and the darkest skin color?

To add to this perspective, hundreds have been convicted who were actually innocent of the crime. 

The James E. Cheek Learning Resource Center believe that it is important to bring attention to this topic and give voice to those who are sentenced to death row. The library in collaboration with Hidden Voices presents: Standing on Love. This art exhibit will feature pictures and stories of inmates on Death Row. The exhibit is located with in the James E. Cheek Learning Resource Center in the Art Atrium. It is available for viewing until June.
