Anthony Ray Hinton's memoir, "The Sun Does Shine," the latest selection for Oprah's Book Club, chronicles his ability to endure, survive and thrive. Oprah sits down with Anthony to talk about his transformative, gripping and emotional story of faith, forgiveness and redemption. Oprah says, "I've been listening to people's stories for most of my career, since I was 19 years old, and this is one of the most incredible stories I've ever heard." In 1985, 29-year-old Anthony was convicted of the brutal murders of two fast food workers in Birmingham, Alabama. Despite no eyewitnesses, no evidence against him and a solid alibi, he was found guilty and sentenced to death. For 30 years, he suffered in isolation and darkness on death row, serving time for crimes he did not commit. Somehow, Anthony found a way to hold on to hope, remain positive and inspire his fellow inmates.
