NEW RESOURCE: "Last Meal" Details Prisoners' Final Meals, Words

In "Last Meal," Jacquelyn C. Black recreates the last acts of 23 people executed in Texas. Photographs depicting each inmate's last meal are accompanied by descriptions of the inmates, and transcripts of their last words before execution. The book also contains general information about the death penalty. Award-winning director Liz Garbus notes, "This powerful and disturbing book gives invaluable insight into the inhumanity of the death penalty, while providing a snapshot of the humanity and individuality of those on death row."
