BRYAN STEVENSON'S FIGHT FOR EQUALITY
(online screening + conversation)
Because we feel that conversations about racial equality and social justice in this country are more important now than ever, we have decided to present an encore screening of this important film and offer a talkback for realtime conversation.
In the last half-century, America has become the nation with the highest rate of incarceration in the world, authorized the execution of hundreds of condemned prisoners and continued to struggle to recover from a long history of racial injustice. For more than three decades, Alabama public interest attorney Bryan Stevenson, founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative, has advocated on behalf of the poor, the incarcerated and the condemned, seeking to eradicate racial discrimination in the criminal justice system. An intimate portrait of this remarkable man, True Justice: Bryan Stevenson’s Fight for Equality follows his struggle to create greater fairness in the system and shows how racial injustice emerged, evolved and continues to threaten the country, challenging viewers to confront it.
This film is presented thanks to the generosity of The Kunhardt Film Foundation, a not-for-profit educational media company that produces documentary films, interviews and teaching tools about the people and ideas that shape our world.
