Sister Helen Prejean and Dead Man Walking Teaching Kit

The Sister Helen Prejean and Dead Man Walking Teaching Kit, including primary sources available for viewing or download and curricular materials for teachers, is meant to complement, enhance, deepen, and challenge the experience for those reading, performing, or viewing Dead Man Walking. These digitized primary sources are but a sampling of the Sr. Helen Prejean papers, which provide a unique and intimate perspective on the death penalty and intersecting social justice issues, the development of Sr. Helen’s activism, and the creative and practical processes of writing and publishing books and bringing the story to screen and stage.
