Bryan Stevenson presents a lecture following the launch of his latest book, New York Time bestseller Just Mercy.
Just Mercy, which is on the New York Times Top 10 best seller list, has been described as a ‘searing, moving and infuriating memoir’ of his experience in tackling racism and injustice in the American justice system.
You are invited to join us for the public launch of Just Mercy and listen to Bryan as he offers his reflections and vision on how to confront injustice and build a just society.
"Bryan Stevenson is America's young Nelson Mandela, a brilliant lawyer fighting with courage and conviction to guarantee justice for all. Just Mercy should be read by people of conscience in every civilized country in the world to discover what happens when revenge and retribution replace justice and mercy. It is as gripping to read as any legal thriller, and what hangs in the balance is nothing less than the soul of a great nation."-Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
