Helen Prejean, C.S.J., anti-death penalty advocate and author of Dead Man Walking

Sister Helen Prejean has been involved in prison ministry since 1981.  Her 1993 book, Dead Man Walking, which inspired both a motion picture and an opera, radically questioned capital punishment.  In this lecture, Sister Helen speaks about her work to build a culture and society in which vengeance is left behind and compassion joins us as one people.
