Clarence Harrison is an innocent man who spent nearly 18 years in prison before he was finally exonerated by DNA evidence. Since he’s been free, Harrison has devoted his life to supporting the organization that helped clear his name, social-justice nonprofit the Georgia Innocence Project.
Harrison had been told that the slides from the victim’s rape kit—along with all of the other physical evidence in his case—had been destroyed. Still, when the staff at the Georgia Innocence Project received Clarence’s letter, they worked tirelessly on his behalf, eventually discovering a single remaining slide containing DNA evidence. The test results proved, irrefutably, that Clarence could not have committed the crime.
Having had so much of his life taken from him, one might expect Harrison to be bitter or angry, but he chooses not to be. Upon his release, he married Yvonne, the woman who had given him something to live for in the face of such great injustice. And now, instead of dwelling on the wounds of his past, Clarence uses them as fuel in his quest to help others, whether imparting hard-earned wisdom to at-risk kids in tough Atlanta neighborhoods or raising money and awareness for the organization that helped free him.
