Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson
Part memoir, part exhortation for much-needed reform to the American criminal justice system, this is a heartrending and inspirational call to arms written by the activist lawyer who founded the Equal Justice Initiative, an Alabama-based organization responsible for freeing or reducing the sentences of scores of wrongfully convicted individuals. Stevenson’s memoir weaves together personal stories from his years as a lawyer into a strong statement against racial and legal injustice, drawing a clear line from slavery and its legacy to today’s still-prejudiced criminal justice system.
