Read the first chapter from Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson

Bryan Stevenson’s memoir, Just Mercy, is newly released this February. Our reviewer describes the book as ‘a profoundly important work’ (read the full review here).

Lauded as a real-life Atticus Finch, Stevenson grew up a member of a poor black community in the racially segregated South. He was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young black man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, startling racial inequality and legal brinkmanship.
