We Need to Talk About an Injustice

TED Talk: Bryan Stevenson

Stevenson is the founder of the Equal Justice Initiative and author of Just Mercy: a Story of Justice and Redemption. In his 24 minute TED Talk he shares details about his upbringing, including stories about his mother and grandmother, and how he came to work as an attorney for those on death row and children in prison. The United States' relationship to the death penalty and death row is explored from the vantage point of someone who is working within the criminal justice system for change.
