Screening and Discussion at Princeton High School: “True Justice: Bryan Stevenson’s Fight for Equality”

Friday, February 7, 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

A screening of the HBO documentary that focuses on the life and career of Alabama public interest attorney Bryan Stevenson, founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative, is followed by a panel discussion.

The film is an intimate portrait of Stevenson who, for more than 30 years, has advocated on behalf of the poor, the incarcerated and the condemned, seeking to eradicate racial discrimination in the criminal justice system. It follows his struggle to create greater fairness in the system and shows how racial injustice emerged, evolved and continues to threaten the country, challenging viewers to confront it. 1 hour, 41 minutes.

The film “Just Mercy,” currently in theaters, is based on Stevenson’s memoir of the same name.

This event begins with a potluck dinner at 6 p.m. The film screening starts at 6:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center.

Presented in partnership with the Princeton Public Schools.
