Join us virtually on Tuesday, May 31st at 3 pm PST for a conversation about transformation, music, and healing between Samora Pinderhughes, creator and director of The Healing Project, and Keith LaMar, collaborator and contributor to the exhibition at YBCA and digital archive.
Keith LaMar is a death row prisoner who was wrongfully convicted in the state of Ohio. On November 16, 2023, the State intends to execute him, even though he has maintained his innocence for nearly three decades, all while being held in indefinite solitary confinement. Keith refuses to accept the State’s false narrative about him, actively contributing beauty to the world as a poet, writer, teacher, and activist even as he fights for his freedom. His entire ordeal is detailed in his beautifully-written book, Condemned.
