Join us for a facilitated discussion the film Just Mercy and the book Just Mercy: a Story of Justice and Redemption.
A powerful true story about the Equal Justice Initiative, the people it represents, and the importance of confronting injustice, Just Mercy tells the true story of Walter McMillian, who, with the help of young defense attorney Bryan Stevenson, appeals his murder conviction. The film is based on the memoir of the same name, written by Stevenson.
Just Mercy is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, and starring Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx, Rob Morgan, Tim Blake Nelson, Rafe Spall, and Brie Larson.
