Please join us as we welcome Jennifer Thompson - Co-Author of "Picking Cotton". "Picking Cotton" traces Jennifer's victimization, the subsequent wrongful conviction and incarceration of Ronald Cotton, and the exoneration and healing process. Jennifer will share her reflections on the case and how it inspired the creation of Healing Justice and its promotion of restorative justice (see https://www.healingjusticeproject.com/). At the conclusion of her talk, Jennifer will sign copies of the book which has recently been optioned for major motion picture development (book available for purchase at the event). Co-Sponsored by WFU School of Law Innocence and Justice Clinic; and Criminal Justice; American Ethnic Studies Program.
