~ 2015 ~
by Bryan Stevenson
Just Mercy is an award-winning account of an idealistic young lawyer’s coming of age, a window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of justice.
Bryan Stevenson’s work fighting poverty and challenging racial discrimination in the criminal justice system has won him numerous awards including the MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Prize and the National Medal of Liberty from the ACLU.
