Description
In 1991, Troy Davis was sentenced to death in Savannah, GA, though he maintained he was innocent for the 20 years until he was executed. Troy's sister, Martina, staunchly defended Troy's innocence as well. In 2001, Martina was diagnosed with terminal breast cancer, left to fight for both her own life and Troy's. Troy was executed in September, 2011, whereas Martina succumbed the following December. I Am Troy Davis is an intimate portrayal of Martina, her brother Troy, the courageous Davis family and all they went through to fight for what they believed was right.

display_descriptionIn 1991 On September 21, 2011 Troy Anthony Davis was put to death by the State of Georgia. Davis' execution was protested by hundreds of thousands of people across the globe, and Pope Benedict XVI, President Jimmy Carter, and 51 members of Congress all appealed for clemency. How did one man capture the world's imagination, and become the iconic face for the campaign to end the death penalty? I Am Troy Davis, coauthored by Jen Marlowe and Davis' sister Martina, tells the intimate story of an ordinary man caught up in an inexorable tragedy. From his childhood in racially-charged Savannah; to the confused events that led to the 1989 shooting of a police officer; to Davis' sudden arrest, conviction, and two-decade fight to prove his innocence; I Am Troy Davis takes us inside a broken legal system where life and death hangs in the balance. It is also an inspiring testament to the unbreakable bond of family, to the resilience of love, and that even when you reach the end of justice, voices from across the world will rise together in chorus and proclaim, "I am Troy Davis," I stand with you.
