About the event

In 2011, Troy Anthony Davis, a black man convicted of murdering white police officer Mark MacPhail in cold blood, was the world’s most famous death row inmate. In the twenty-two years since the murder, Davis had faced four execution dates. The day after one of those execution dates, a fifteen-year-old named Gautam Narula wrote Davis a letter.

In his award-winning memoir Remain Free, Gautam Narula details his unlikely friendship with Troy Davis, a man wrongfully accused of killing a police officer. Drawing upon hundreds of hours of conversations, letters, and personal visits, the memoir explores the issues that plague the criminal justice system. Remain Free is a brutally honest expression of humanity existing in even the darkest of places. Co-hosted by the Boston Public Library, Kavita, and the South Asian Arts and Cultural Council.
