Georgia Innocence Project Event

This True Colors event features live music from Life: 20/20, a new release from the Georgia Innocence Project inspired by the life of their first exoneree, Clarence Harrison. Musicians Melanie Hammet and Ben Holst will be joined by Clarence Harrison in this evening of music and stories. Click here to check out the video.

Approaching the 10th anniversary of his release, Clarence Harrison was proven innocent by DNA evidence after serving 18 years in prison.  His story inspired Hammet and Holst to write the music that has become Life 20/20 and their larger project, Life Sentence, chronicling Clarence’s journey from wrongful incarceration to freedom.

The music of Life 20/20 has been featured on CNN, Al Jazeera English, Atlanta's NBC affiliate and more.  Life Sentence: The Album (the next step in the project) will ultimately feature fully-produced versions of the trio's songs about Clarence's life, performed by a diverse collection of renowned Georgia artists across a variety of genres, from hip-hop and R&B to rock, pop and country. As with Life 20/20, the goal of Life Sentence: The Album is to raise money and awareness for the Georgia Innocence Project so that the organization can continue its mission to exonerate the wrongly convicted.

True Colors is co-presenting this performance and discussion as part of our pre-production community conversation series for the upcoming production Race.

Suggested donation: $15 - more if you have it, less if you don't have it.
