Ohio Exoneree Ricky Jackson Receives Standing Ovation at the MET

Last Saturday Ohio Exoneree Ricky Jackson participated in a TEDxMET performance at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Ricky spoke about his love for art, one that developed when he was a child and helped him endure 39 years of wrongful incarceration. The audience was visibly moved by Ricky’s words which were met with a standing ovation.

Limor Tomer, the General Manager of Concerts & Lectures at the Metropolitan Art Museum, had the following to say about Ricky’s performance:

Yesterday Ricky inspired, touched, moved and brought the house down at TEDxMET.  His depth, humility, intelligence, perceptiveness, heart and soul shone through and touched everyone very deeply.

  1. I have met Ricky Jackson, and can say without reservation he is the kind of person you would be honored to call your friend.
