Joe Ingle and Jeremy Collins , “Race, Incarceration and the Death Penalty”

This panel brings together two leading national (and in fact international) figures in the fight against the death penalty, and against the racialization of criminal justice in the USA. They will tell their stories, and then the room will be opened up for a public discussion  moderated by Luke Powery, Dean of Duke Chapel. Free pizza and a beverage will be provided to all students from 5:30pm.

Rev. Joe Ingle, a UMC minister from Tennessee, is a leading figure in the fight against the death penalty. He has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of these efforts. He is most well known for his long friendship with Philip Workman, who was executed after 25 years of “due process,” despite serious doubts about his guilt. (He wrote about this case in The Inferno.) But the Rev Ingle has been involved with many other people on death row. (See his Last Rights.)

Jeremy Collins has worn several hats at the Southern Coalition for Social Justice. He currently serves as an advocate for the Criminal Justice and Voting Rights projects.  A native of Dardens, North Carolina, Jeremy earned undergraduate degrees and a JD from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  Prior to law school, Jeremy served as an organizer, campaign director and lobbyist advocating civil rights and social justice causes.

Sponsored by the Duke Divinity School, PRIMEDD, The Office of Black Church Studies, The Innocence Project (Law), the Franklin Humanities Institute and the DHRC@FHI.
