"What is worse than having a client on Death Row in Texas? Having a client on Death Row in Texas who is innocent and not knowing if you will be able to stop his execution in time. Grace and Justice on Death Row: A Race Against Time to Free an Innocent Man tells the story of Alfred Dewayne Brown, a man who spent over twelve years in prison (ten of them on Texas’ infamous Death Row) for a high-profile crime he did not commit, and his lawyer, Brian Stolarz, who dedicated his career and life to secure his freedom. The book chronicles Brown’s extraordinary journey to freedom against very long odds, overcoming unscrupulous prosecutors, corrupt police, inadequate defense counsel, and a broken criminal justice system. The book examines how a lawyer-client relationship turned into one of brotherhood."

Im Januar 1982 fragte mich Chava Colon von der Prison Coalition, ob ich eine Brieffreundschaft mit einem zum Tode Verurteilten eingehen würde. Ich willigte ohne zu zögern ein, denn mir schien das sehr gut zu meiner Arbeit in St. Thomas, einem Wohnprojekt für mittellose farbige Mitbürger in New Orleans, zu passen. Natürlich war das Wohnprojekt keine Todeszelle, aber es kam ihr schon ziemlich nah. Auch hier war der Tod allgegenwärtig - in Gestalt von Schußwaffen, Krankheit und Sucht. Ich kam nach St. Thomas, um den Armen zu helfen, und ich ging davon aus, daß jemand, der in einer Todeszelle saß, durchaus in diese Kategorie gehörte. Jedenfalls war das mein Eindruck nach einem Vortrag, den John Vodicka 1977 gehalten hatte. Er war Gründer der Coalition on Jails and Prisons in Louisiana, für die Chava arbeitete. In dem Vortrag hatte ich ebenfalls erfahren, daß die Todesstrafe im Süden der Vereinigten Staaten besonders rigoros angewandt wird - vor allem gegen jene, die Weiße getötet haben. Das Büro der Prison Coalition war nahe dem Hope House, in dem ich Jugendliche unterrichtete, die die HighSchool abgebrochen hatten. Chava und ich begegneten uns daher sehr oft. Nachdem er den Namen des Verurteilten aufgeschrieben hatte, sagte er. "Vielleicht sollte ich Ihnen doch lieber einen anderen zuteilen. Dieser Mann ist ein Einzelgänger, der schreibt vermutlich nicht. Vielleicht möchten Sie lieber jemanden, der Ihnen auch antwortet."
