Sister Helen Prejean On Love, Forgiveness And Restorative Justice

Published in 1993, Sister Helen Prejean's memoir Dead Man Walking sparked national debate on capital punishment and inspired an Academy Award-winning movie, a play and an opera. The opera, with more than 60 productions across the world, debuts at Lyric Opera on Saturday.
