Death Penalty Photography Exhibit on View

November 6, 2013

Lasell's Criminal Justice department has teamed with the RoseMary B. Fuss Center for Research on Aging and Intergenerational Studies to host an exhibit and talk by photographer Scott Langley, who has created the most comprehensive collection of original death penalty photographs available from one source.

The Death Penalty Photography Documentary Project will be on exhibit in de Witt Hall on November 6 with a talk at 4:30 pm by Langley.

Organizers hope that through the Death Penalty Photography Documentary Project, the Lasell community will understand more about capital punishment.

This documentary includes photographs of execution vigils, a view inside an execution chamber, the hours leading up to an execution, portraits of exonerated death row prisoners, celebrities opposed to the death penalty, marches, demonstrations and candid emotional and prayerful moments.

President Alexander Responds to the Tragedy in Orlando  Thursday, June 16, 2016We the people of the United States cherish our freedoms. Whether it be the freedom to say what we want, to assemble in groups of our choosing, to follow the religions of our choice, to vote as our conscience demands, to own and carry weapons, to start new businesses and make money, and to move about as we please -- these are values we hold dear and are reluctant to compromise.
