Jahni Harris 38 1/2 years ago, approximately 69 days after his 18th birthday, Jahni Harris was sentenced to death for his role in a "very brutal" crime. He spoke at the TEDx event at Marion Correctional.
You may have gathered that my talk is about monsters and about how one in particular was able to remove his mask and regain some stature against the ranks of real men. I am who I've been waiting on - a life worth living.
