About the stunning new Haymarket title, “I Am Troy Davis”:

?Here is a shout for human rights and for the abolition of the death penalty. This book, I Am Troy Davis, should be read and cherished. It will inspire courage in the heart of those who are willing to use their efforts to save lives and increase the quality of life for all people.?

?Maya Angelou

“Like Trayvon Martin’s monumental murder, the execution of Troy Davis was a historic awakening for this country — an awakening of the deadly consequences of white supremacy. Don’t miss this book!”

?Cornel West, Professor of Philosophy and Christian Practice, Union Theological Seminary
