Keynote Speaker: Rubin Carter - "The Hurricane"
The life of Rubin "Hurricane" Carter has taken more twists and turns than a Rocky Mountain highway, from obscurity to acclaim and back again - and again. Wrongfully arrested and convicted for triple murder, the former professional boxer was sentenced to three life terms, narrowly escaping the electric chair. He became a civil-rights cause célèbre and was immortalized in the Bob Dylan song and later in the Norman Jewison movie Hurricane. In February 1988, the 22-year old indictment was finally dismissed. His presentations inspire audiences to never give up on their dreams, to go the distance, and to persevere no matter what obstacles they may face.
