Join us to view the award-winning film True Justice: Bryan Stevenson's Fight for Equality, then stay to discuss. Learn about the Equal Justice Initiative and local efforts, in this program for adults.
True Justice: Bryan Stevenson’s Fight for Equality follows 30 years of EJI’s work on behalf of the poor, the incarcerated, and the condemned. The film won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Social Issue Documentary, and a Peabody Award. Told primarily in his own words, True Justice shares Bryan Stevenson’s experience with a criminal justice system that “treats you better if you’re rich and guilty than if you’re poor and innocent.” (eji.org) Stevenson is a widely acclaimed public interest lawyer and the founder and Executive Director of EJI. His best-selling book Just Mercy is the basis for the movie of the same name, starring Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx.
This Rolling Hills Library program is offered in cooperation with the Black Archives Museum of St. Joseph and the Equal Justice Initiative (based in Montgomery, AL), and will include a brief update about local efforts for the Lloyd Warner Community Remembrance Project.
