Standing on Love
A Hidden Voices Project
Photographs by Jenny Warburg
In 2013, Hidden Voices was invited to develop a project with men living on death row. That project became Serving Life:
ReVisioning Justice. As part of the project, we collaborated on a story collection, RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW: Life Stories
from America’s Death Row. (Duke University Press, 2021) At the close of a public reading of these stories, an audience of
400 community members stood as one: applauding, whistling, weeping. At the rear were family members of the incarcerated
men. The families were in tears; they had never imagined people caring. Nor had they ever met another parent with a child
scheduled to be killed. As they left, one mother turned to us. “What I want to know is when are you going to tell OUR story?”
