The Newman University Criminal Justice program, with the support of the Gerber Institute for Catholic Studies, will present Darryl Hunt hosting a screening of the award-winning documentary about his life, “The Trials of Darryl Hunt,” at 7 p.m. on Monday, February 6 in the Performance Hall of the De Mattias Fine Arts Center on the Newman campus. The film documents a brutal rape/murder in the American South, and offers a deeply personal story of a wrongfully convicted man who spent twenty years in prison for a crime he did not commit.inflatable slides
Mr. Hunt will take questions from the audience immediately following the film. There will also be a brief reception and an opportunity to pre-order signed copies of Mr. Hunt’s forthcoming book “Life Interrupted: The Trials of Darryl Hunt.” The event is free and open to the public.
Mr. Hunt’s appearance is the result of a successful grant application made by Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice Jill Fort to the Gerber Institute last year.
