Exchange Exemplar: Exposé Of Justice System Becomes An Opera

"Blind Injustice" onstage at Cincinnati Opera.

When a prosecutor switches sides and begins calling out the excesses and abuses of his former fellows, it's bound to have an impact.  And so it was with Mark Godsey and his book Blind Injustice: A Former Prosecutor Exposes the Psychology and Politics of Wrongful Convictions

But the work has taken an interesting turn: it has been turned into an opera.  Cincinnati Opera premiered the sung version of "Blind Injustice" in late July, with performances running through July 27th.  We mark the occasion with a re-airing of our interview with Mark Godsey from October 2017.
