With Justice for all? Bryan Stevenson and the First Year Book

November 1, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Guest Speaker: Bryan Stevenson, Author of Just Mercy, the 2016-17 First Year Book at UMD

Bryan Stevenson will be on campus to discuss his book and speak on the public defense available to the poor and the wrongly condemned in the United States. His memoir compels readers to question what mercy is in America. Through the story of Walter McMillian, Just Mercy shows the how the criminal justice system treats accused individuals. Like To Kill a Mockingbird, this story involves the wrongful conviction and imprisonment of an innocent man for a crime committed in Monroeville, Alabama. The difference is that Mr. McMillian’s case is the true story of a dream deferred.
