Kenneth Reams
Founder

SK927 P.O. BOX 400
Grady, Arkansas 71644

Kenneth Reams is the founder of Who Decides, Inc. Kenneth was born in 1974 in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. Although he received no formal training, art was one of the few activities he enjoyed growing up.

In 1993, Mr. Reams was convicted of murder and sentenced to death. He has resided on death row and has lived in solitary confinement 23 hours a day in his small cell ever since.

In 2012, he began creating art sculptures, painting and drawings that would cause viewers to think about the controversial subject of capital punishment and solitary confinement. All of the works created by Mr. Reams were produced in his 6’ by 9’ cell with limited access to art materials.

With the assistance of others, he founded Who Decides, Inc., a 501© (3) tax-exempt non-profit organization. His aim is to begin presenting future death penalty shows through this organization and to work towards establishing a National Museum of Capital Punishment.

Welcome to Who Decides, Inc. Who Decides, Inc. is a public-benefit organization. As a national network of activists, volunteers and dedicated people, we are committed to using various mediums of art such as creative writing, plays, visual art, dance, music and film as a way of educating society about the practice and history of capital punishment in America. The public events and forums that we present explore more than 400 years of the U.S. death penalty from all perspectives: the crime, the victims, the condemned, the methods of execution, and the laws. Our ultimate goal at Who Decides is to preserve the history of this controversial practice by establishing a national museum on the death penalty. This national museum will serve as an educational institution devoted to collecting, studying, exhibiting and interpreting America's extensive history on capital punishment.
