I should have read Just Mercy by Brian Stevenson a long time ago. It has come through my Little Free Library numerous times and has been on my shelf for longer than I would like to admit. What a terrible and engrossing story Stevenson tells about the work he does and the problems with incarceration and racism in our country. If you haven’t read it, add it to your list right away. And, next, I should take on the movie. Does anyone have opinions about which is better, the book or the movie?
The movie is great but it only deals with Walter McMillan’s case. As you know, the book provided many more examples that our judicial system fails POC and other poor people.
Agreed – this is one I’ve meant to read for awhile and haven’t yet. I need to get on it too.
