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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
