Guest: Sister Helen Prejean

Since 1976, nearly 1500 Americans have been executed in the name of justice. Sister Helen Prejean, though, cautions about the human cost of the death penalty and the innocent victims wrongfully put to death.

 

Story in the Public Square airs on Rhode Island PBS on Sundays at 11 a.m., with rebroadcast Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. An audio version of the program airs Saturdays at 8:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. ET and Sundays at 1:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. ET on SiriusXM's popular P.O.T.U.S. (Politics of the United States) channel 124.

Story in the Public Square is a weekly public affairs series featuring interviews with today's best print, screen, music, and other storytellers about their creative processes, and how their stories impact public understanding and policy.

The series is co-hosted by Jim Ludes, executive director of the Pell Center at Salve Regina University, and by G. Wayne Miller, award-winning journalist at The Providence Journal, visiting fellow, and director of the Story in the Public Square initiative, a partnership between the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy and The Providence Journal. The initiative aims to study, celebrate, and tell stories that matter.
