Naseem Rakha, author of "The Crying Tree" reads aloud from I Am Troy Davis in Portland
Troy Davis' impact lives on in Seattle September 2014

“At the [Center on Wrongful Convictions], 28 interns read I Am Troy Davis . . . They felt that the book dealt with the problems of the death penalty, while making it very personal through the interaction with Troy’s family. It was truly a well-written, engrossing book and I was glad we had the opportunity to read and discuss it.”
