Still Surviving by Nanon Williams is a shocking account of a teenager growing up on Texas death row in one of the most brutal of prisons in the United States. Nanon Williams invites us to visit him in hell. We learn of a boy growing into manhood on his own terms while in prison and his capacity for surviving violence and racism through many devastating experiences. Nanon Williams shows us how he has managed to survive, having been falsely convicted of murder. He shows the human face of people whom society has defined as monsters and reveals shocking examples of sadistic, inhumane behavior of prison guards.
Nanon Williams gives us the chance to retune our mindset when it comes to the death penalty, not as an abstract term, but as a reality for many human beings in this country.
