Just Mercy

A Story of Justice and Redemption

Bryan Stevenson

This powerful true story follows the journey of a young lawyer who founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice committed to defending those in need. Through his defense of a young man wrongly sentenced to die, the lawyer is drawn into a world of conspiracy and political maneuvering, ultimately transforming his understanding of justice and mercy. Just Mercy provides a poignant window into the lives of those who have been defended and serves as a call for compassion and redemption in our broken system of justice.

If you haven read ‘Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption’ by my hero Bryan Stevenson, watch the movie ‘Just Mercy’ (on Prime) with a great performance by Jamie Fox. But really you should also read the book.      source
Because so many AP English Lang teachers recommended it, I read Bryan Stevenson’s "Just Mercy" over the holidays and am glad I did. I hope the new movie version encourages people to read the book, which is utterly inspiring. #JustMercy      source
No lie: this book by @MsBKB is every bit as good, as heartbreaking, as Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson and 13th by @ava. I am in awe of the scope of Brittany's story, and how powerfully told it is. Truly exceptional.      source
