The Sun Does Shine is the story of Anthony Ray Hinton, a resilient and hopeful survivor. In 1985 Mr. Hinton was convicted of two counts of capital murder and spent thirty years in solitary confinement on death row at Holman State Prison in Alabama for crimes he did not commit.
In 2015, Mr. Hinton was acquitted on both counts of capital murder and released from prison with the help of Bryan Stevenson (Author of Just Mercy) and the Equal Justice Initiative. This book will have you reflecting on the need for reform in our national criminal justice system, while at the same time rejoicing in Mr. Hinton’s ability to find freedom, hope, joy and love in darkest of times and environments.See more details and how to get books
