On Second Thought For Friday, October 26, 2018

Today on the show, we explored the complicated traditions of place and space with Guardian Atlanta Week, Sonny Seiler and Anthony Ray Hinton.

We viewed Atlanta through the eyes of The Guardian, a UK-based newspaper, which spent a week in the city for Guardian Atlanta Week.

We heard from Sonny Seiler on the origins of University of Georgia's famous mascot, Uga. He also discussed his legacy as a Savannah lawyer, captured by the famous book, "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil."


Finally, we heard from Anthony Ray Hinton, who was exonerated after thirty years in prison. "I wanted to believe in the system my mom had taught me to believe in," said Anthony Ray Hinton on the justice system. "I believe that justice should not be about race--it should be about that word, justice."

Hinton and author Bryan Stevenson will be at Emory University tonight to discuss law, justice and activism.
