Maurice Chammah is a journalist, staff writer for The Marshall Project, and author of the book Let the Lord Sort Them: The Rise and Fall of the Death Penalty.
A new book takes a look at the history and practice of one of the most controversial elements of the American criminal justice system: the death penalty. Author Maurice Chammah joins us to discuss his book Let the Lord Sort Them: The Rise and Fall of the Death Penalty, which won the 2019 J. Anthony Lukas Work-In-Progress Book Award.
Death penalty stories often center on legal and medical logistics while focusing less on the actual inmates, their families and defense lawyers, and even executioners. Maurice Chammah is a staff writer for The Marshall Project, and he joins host Krys Boyd to talk about his in-depth look at capital punishment and how the execution of a person affects many lives. His book is called “Let the Lord Sort Them: The Rise and Fall of the Death Penalty.”
