of the West Memphis 3 will appear with Pam Hobbs, mother of murder victim Stevie Branch, at UALR on Wednesday night for a free screening of "West of Memphis," the 2012 documentary outlining the WM3 case and the worldwide groundswell of support that eventually set Baldwin, Damien Echols and Jessie Misskelley free in August 2011

The screening will begin at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 23 in Room 214C of UALR's Donaghey Student Center Building. Admission is free. Baldwin and Hobbs will answer questions from the audience. The event is hosted by UALR's School of Mass Communication. 

Baldwin's visit to UALR marks his second public appearance in Arkansas since his release, the first being an event at the Clinton Presidential Center in Dec. 2012, with Baldwin appearing on a panel with "Devil's Knot" author Mara Leveritt.  Since his release, Baldwin — who now lives in Seattle — has become a vocal advocate for the wrongfully convicted, including starting a website, www.proclaimjustice.org, that seeks to bring attention to questionable cases.
