My gratitude for the article about the book “Just Mercy” and its author, Bryan Stevenson. I knew nothing about Bryan and his work until a few years ago when I visited Montgomery, Alabama, on a mini-civil rights tour that my sisters and I undertook.
I still feel the impact of visiting the Equal Justice Initiative museum and the other monuments and memorials in Montgomery. On the way there we crossed the Edmund Pettus bridge in Selma. The area carries a particular vibe and, unexpected as it is, that vibe for me is one of importance and accomplishment. So much happened in Montgomery.
I appreciate the impetus the article gives me to donate again to that project. The stories from it are so important in the eternal fight for justice.
