What: You’re invited to experience a panel discussion hosted by Ford’s Theatre Society titled “With Malice Toward None: Judy Shepard, a Mother’s Response to Hate,” as part of The Lincoln Legacy Project.
Did you know? “With Malice Toward None: Judy Shepard, a Mother’s Response to Hate,” is the first in a series of Monday night panel discussions addressing American diversity as part of The Lincoln Legacy Project—a multi-year effort designed to encourage people of differing viewpoints to engage in meaningful and respectful dialogue about equality and understanding.
Cokie Roberts interviews Judy Shepard about her work to keep her son’s legacy alive through activism and the Matthew Shepard Foundation. Gay college student Matthew Shepard was abducted, tied to a fence, beaten and left to die by two assailants in Laramie, Wyoming, in October 1998. His murder claimed national and international attention and has become one of the most widely known anti-gay hate crimes in American history.
