Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson (2014). This is the true story of the founding of the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending the poor, the wrongly condemned, and those trapped in the furthest reaches of our criminal justice system. The stories he tells challenge us to consider the consequences and impact of mass incarceration, capital punishment, juvenile sentencing, and, ultimately, the redeeming potential of mercy.
