Join UCSB Arts & Lectures as they present Bryan Stevenson, founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, for American Injustice: Mercy, Humanity and Making a Difference on Friday, April 30 at 5 p.m. Pacific.

One of the nation's visionary legal thinkers and social justice advocates, Stevenson has spent nearly four decades seeking to eradicate racial discrimination in the criminal justice system. A MacArthur Fellow, he is an attorney, human rights activist and founder of the Equal Justice Initiative. He spearheaded Alabama’s Legacy Museum and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice, the first national memorial to victims of white supremacy, which opened in 2018. Stevenson is the subject of HBO’s 2019 documentary True Justice and his bestselling memoir Just Mercy was adapted into an acclaimed feature film of the same name.

This presentation will be followed by a Q&A moderated by Christopher McAuley, UC Santa Barbara associate professor of Black Studies.
