    Sister Helen Prejean has been instrumental in sparking national dialogue on the death penalty and helping to shape the Catholic Church’s newly vigorous opposition to state executions. She travels around the world giving talks about her ministry. She considers herself a southern storyteller.

    Sister Helen is a member of the Congregation of St. Joseph. She spent her first years with the Sisters teaching religion to junior high school students. Realizing that being on the side of poor people is an essential part of the Gospel she moved into the St. Thomas Housing Project in New Orleans and began working at Hope House from 1981 – 1984.

    During this time, she was asked to correspond with a death row inmate Patrick Sonnier at Angola. She agreed and became his spiritual adviser. After witnessing his execution, she wrote a book about the experience.
    The result was Dead Man Walking: An Eyewitness Account of the Death Penalty in the United States.

  • Image preview 6:30pm - 8:00pm: Lecture by Dr. Ed Baptist (Cornell University): “I looked for a story about families. I found a story about capitalism.” (by the author of “The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and The Making of American Capitalism”)
    Ed Baptist grew up in Durham, North Carolina, and received his undergraduate degree from Georgetown University.  He did his graduate work at the University of Pennsylvania.  Since then, he has taught first at the University of Miami, and, since 2003, at Cornell University. He will speaking about his new book, The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism, published by Basic Books in September 2014.  Ten years in the making, this sweeping history of the United States from the Revolution to the Civil War puts enslaved African Americans at the center of the story.  Using interviews with ex-slaves, personal narratives written by survivors who escaped slavery, the business papers and secret letters of enslavers, as well as the newspapers and more public documents of American communities, this book argues that to understand how the American past is today’s prologue without understanding how American slavery grew and changed, became modern, and shaped the American nation.
