A Certain Sheen

Martin Sheen talks about a life on stage and screen—and of Catholic social activism. He was on campus for the 2015 College of Arts and Sciences Dean’s Leadership Forum.

A Certain Sheen graced campus recently: actor and social activist Martin Sheen, who joined Helen Prejean, CSJ—known for her book Dead Man Walking—for the College of Arts and Sciences Dean’s Leadership Forum April 13–14. Public talks, forums, and class visits brought discussion about the death penalty, Catholic social movements, and a life acting on screen and stage.

“All things being equal, I don’t really believe that anyone can tell us any fundamental truth that we don’t already know instinctively; the challenge lies in accepting the responsibility for that knowingness. So whether we choose to acknowledge it or not, we are all responsible for the world and each other: the world exactly as it is.”
