Fighting Time : Exploring the Social Impact of Wrongful Conviction

During the presentation Banks, who is the daughter of the professor killed in New Orleans, leads attendees on an exploration of the complicated impact of wrongful conviction on the families of both the victim and the accused. She weaves into the discussion excerpts from her third book project, Fighting Time, a collaboration with Isaac Knapper, the man falsely accused of killing her father.
