An educated American audience who may be unfamiliar with the race and justice issues that Just Mercy unveils.
In his memoir, Just Mercy, Bryan Stevenson, lawyer and founder of the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI), tells the story of EJI, from its early days with a small staff facing the nation’s highest death sentencing and execution rates, through a successful campaign to challenge the cruel practice of sentencing children to die in prison, to revolutionary projects designed to confront Americans with our history of racial injustice. One of EJI’s first clients was Walter McMillian, a young Black man who was sentenced to die for the murder of a young white woman that he didn’t commit. The case exemplifies how the death penalty in America is a direct descendant of lynching — a system that treats the rich and guilty better than the poor and innocent.
