The Marc Steiner Show

Talking About Race With Bryan Stevenson Of The Equal Justice Initiative

Bryan StevensonFebruary 25, 2015 – Segment 2

We preview of the newest lecture in Open Society Institute-Baltimore’s Talking About Race series, taking place Thursday night. I will talk with Bryan Stevenson, Executive Director of Equal Justice Initiative, a law practice dedicated to defending some of America’s most rejected and marginalized people, about his new book Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption. The book details one of the first cases Stevenson took on, that of Walter McMillan, a Black man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit.

Bryan Stevenson will give his talk Thursday night, February 26th at 7pm in the Wheeler Auditorium at the Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore. This event is open to the public and is part of OSI-Baltimore’s Talking About Race Series, co-sponsored by the Enoch Pratt Free Library.
