American Injustice: Humanity, Mercy and Making a Difference

Bryan Stevenson
Visions & Ventures

Stevenson is the author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller, “Just Mercy.” Stevenson is the executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative in Montgomery, Ala., and a professor of law at New York University Law School. He has won relief for dozens of condemned prisoners, argued five times before the Supreme Court, and won national acclaim for his work challenging bias against the poor and people of color. “Just Mercy” gives an account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer’s coming of age, a window into the lives of those he has defended, and an argument for compassion in the pursuit of justice.
