'Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption,' by Bryan Stevenson
Founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, Bryan Stevenson has dedicated his life to defending those who are most in need: the wrongly condemned, the poor, women and children trapped in the justice system.
Stevenson has written an engaging and unforgettable account of his work, beginning with one of his first cases, that of Walter McMillian, a young man sentenced to die for a murder he did not commit.
