“Until we reckon with history, we’re not going to get free.”– Bryan Stevenson
The Center for Reconciliation has selected Just Mercy, a book by Bryan Stevenson, for the fourth session of our popular book club series. The book club will meet bi-weekly to discuss sections of Just Mercy.
About the Book
Just Mercy, which has recently come out as a film of the same name, comes from lawyer and author Bryan Stevenson, the founder of the Equal Justice Initiative. It details his personal experiences with the American justice system, defending marginalized people including those wrongfully assigned to death row.
This book has won multiple prizes, and can spark a multitude of important conversations around the history of our justice system, equity, race, class, gender, access and activism.
