The Visiting Room Project

Location: Eidman Courtroom (CCJ 2.306)

The Visiting Room Project is a digital experience that invites the public to sit face-to-face with people serving life without the possibility of parole and hear them tell their stories. More than five years in the making, the project offers the only collection of its kind, containing more than 100 filmed interviews with people currently serving life without parole at Angola, the Louisiana State Penitentiary. The event will kick off with a 30-minute screening of several compiled interviews from The Visiting Room Project, followed by a panel discussion featuring people who were interviewed by the project and are now free.
