Anthony Graves

Anthony Graves spent more than 18 years in prison — 16 of those years in solitary confinement and 12 years on Texas Death Row — for a crime he did not commit. With his steadfast focus on his innocence and the tireless work of The Innocence Network, he was vindicated and released in 2010. Today his foundation promotes criminal justice reform by fighting for those with overly harsh sentences, the wrongly convicted, and cases of actual innocence. Mr. Graves has a forthcoming book, Infinite Hope, which will be available in January 2018 from Beacon Press.

Bryan Stevenson, LBJ Distinguished LectureMonday, February 05, 2018
Bryan Stevenson | LBJ Distinguished Lecture
Bryan Stevenson is the founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative and one of the most acclaimed and respected lawyers in the nation. His memoir, Just Mercy, is the story of a young lawyer fighting on the frontlines of a country in thrall to extreme punishments and careless justice. It is an inspiring story of unbreakable humanity in the most desperate circumstances, and a powerful indictment of our broken justice system and the twisted values that allow it to continue. The book is Texas State University's 2017-2018 Common Reading selection.
