Students, faculty, staff and community members are invited to attend the 29th Annual “Dr. Ethel H. Hall African American Heritage Month Celebration” with guest speaker Anthony Ray Hinton, Community Educator at the Equal Justice Initiative. Mr. Hinton was falsely accused of committing two murders outside of Birmingham, Alabama, in 1985. He was wrongly convicted and spent nearly 30 years on Alabama's death row before he was exonerated and freed in April 2015. He is a powerful advocate against the death penalty and speaks nationally about the urgent need for criminal justice reform.
The event is sponsored by the UA School of Social Work and held in honor of Dr. Ethel H. Hall, who passed away on Nov. 12, 2011. Dr. Hall was the first woman and African American to graduate from the University's social work doctoral program.
