Just Mercy is a heartbreaking—but not entirely hopeless—look inside the American criminal justice system. The guide on this journey to death row, judges’ chambers, and courthouses small and large is Bryan Stevenson, one of the country’s foremost criminal justice reformers and the founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, the acclaimed legal aid organization based in Montgomery, Alabama.
There are many reasons to read this book. If you care about issues of social justice, the justice system, race, or poverty, then this book is a natural fit.
But this book is even more. It will push you to consider what you’re doing with your life, about what you stand for, about how you treat people. It will get you out of the humdrum dailiness and encourage you to think about the big.
