Bode 2024 Keynote Speaker Announced
Amanda Knox

Between 2007 and 2015, Amanda Knox spent four years in an Italian prison and eight years on trial for a murder she didn’t commit. The scandal made headlines for nearly a decade, as Amanda, dubbed “Foxy Knoxy,” was exploited by the media and judged by the masses on a global scale. Though she was exonerated by Italy’s highest court, she was sentenced to life by the court of public opinion, forever branded as a killer despite her innocence.

Since her exoneration, she has fought to reclaim her identity and to find meaning in those stolen years and unjust incarceration, all while advocating for a more just legal system and a more ethical media.

Thoughtful, passionate, and revelatory, Amanda Knox has captivated

audiences across the country and abroad, sharing the wisdom she learned the

hard way about how to find resilience in the face of tremendous adversity.

She is the author of the New York Times bestselling memoir, Waiting to Be Heard, and co-host, with her husband Christopher Robinson, of the podcast Labyrinths.

Join us in Atlanta as she shares her incredible story of how faulty DNA forensics played a role in her conviction as well as how DNA also led to her exoneration.
