Condemned: Keith Lamar on Death Row

Standard
Saturday, August 1 @ 7 pm, Boxcar Books:
Students Against State Violence presents a compelling 36-minute documentary that focuses on Keith Lamar, who was convicted and sentenced to die in the aftermath of the 1993 Lucasville Prison Uprising. It looks at the root causes of the prison uprising, validates allegations that Keith was railroaded into a death penalty case for something he did not do, and points to the prosecutors’ misconduct as being a central fact in many of the trials related to the Lucasville prison rebellion.Keith Lamar’s fate is currently being decided – a date could be set for his execution sometime in the near future if the court decides against his appeal to be taken off death row.
