Dead Man Walking: The Journey Continues

Sister Helen Prejean is known around the world for her tireless work against the death penalty. She has been instrumental in sparking national dialogue on capital punishment and in shaping the Catholic Church’s newly vigorous opposition to all executions. She is the author of Dead Man Walking: An Eyewitness Account of the Death Penalty in the United States, which has ignited a national debate on capital punishment and it inspired an Academy Award winning movie, a play, and an opera.
