Movie Screening: Mother’s Day: The Forgotten Victims of Death Row

Location: Francis Auditorium, TNH 2.114

Join us for a screening and discussion of “Mother’s Day: The Forgotten Victims of Death Row” with director Linda Broocks, ’78.

Between 1976 and 2016, the U.S. executed over 1400 people. The mothers of many of the condemned men and women testified at trial, pleading for the lives of their children. The intense grief these women feel is unacknowledged by society. Each of these mothers has a story to tell. This film presents just a few.
