Inclusive Reading Club: Just Mercy: A story of justice and redemption

Inclusive Reading Club: Just Mercy: A story of justice and redemption Online

Join us in reading either the entire book or selected chapters of Bryan Stevenson's Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption for a moderated discussion by Theresa Ladrigan-Whelpley, Ph.D., Vice President for Mission Integration, and Dr. Timothy Neary, Chair and Professor of History. Just Mercy recounts the unforgettable true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to end mass incarceration in America — from one of the most inspiring lawyers of our time. To request a free copy of the book (while supplies last), send an email to salvelibrarian@salve.edu.

This program is part of the university's three days of events that explore the life and legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., with a focus on the Mercy Critical Concerns of anti-racism and non-violence.

Just Mercy tells the story of the Stevenson, who founded the Alabama nonprofit law office Equal Justice Initiative, dedicated to defending the poor, the incarcerated, and the wrongly condemned. With a small staff facing the nation’s highest death sentencing and execution rates, EJI led a successful campaign to challenge the cruel practice of sentencing children to die in prison, and initiated revolutionary projects designed to confront the country’s history of racial injustice.

Archives and Special Collections: Hurricane History 

Rhode Island and South Coast communities have long dealt with the dangers and damages of hurricanes and tropical storms. The effects of these storms will only increase in impact as the Atlantic hurricane season grows longer and more destructive due to climate change’s warming seas. Before the advent of social media, photographic documentation of storms was circulated through printed publications, and was sometimes generated for insurance reasons. Items from University Archives and Special Collections (UASC) tell the story of hurricanes in Rhode Island in the twentieth century in a display on the third floor of McKillop Library.
