Death Penalty Repeal Highlighted at Three Upcoming Film Events

Three events will highlight need for repeal of the Death Penalty. A documentary about Kirk Bloodsworth, the first American on Death Row to be exonerated by DNA evidence, will be shown in NH this month. A discussion with Kirk Bloodsworth follows the movie.

"Bloodsworth:An Innocent Man's Journey Through Death Row" tells the story of Bloodsworth's eight years, ten months and 19 days in prison for a crime he did not commit, against the backdrop of the death penalty repeal fight in Maryland, the state where he was convicted and held.

These events will take place 

Tuesday, September 27, at 6:30 pm at Portsmouth Public Library

Wednesday, September 28, at 6pm at Hyde Hall, Plymouth State University

Thursday, September 29, at 6pm at Frost Hall, Southern NH University

The events are sponsored by the The NH Coalition Against the Death Penalty and local organizations at each location.
