Just Mercy, A Focused Conversation on the Movie
August 23, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
August 23, Sunday, 2:00 pm PT, 3:30 pm CT
Just Mercy is a true story based on the life work of Civil Rights Attorney Bryan Stevenson. After graduating from Harvard, Stevenson heads to Alabama and establishes the Equal Justice Initiative to defend those wrongly condemned or those not afforded proper representation. One of his first cases is that of Walter McMillian, who is sentenced to death in 1987 for the murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite evidence proving his innocence. In the years that follow, Stevenson encounters racism and legal and political maneuverings as he tirelessly fights for justice. The story in this film exemplifies the systemic racism that plagues the U.S. society. Join Robert Quintana Hopkins and Jane Stallman, CSF Partners, for an in-depth discussion of the movie.
