We wanted to make you aware of HBO’s new documentary, “True Justice: Bryan Stevenson’s Fight for Equality” airing this Wednesday, June 26 and featuring the public interest attorney who founded theEqual Justice Initiative (EJI) and opened Montgomery’s National Memorial for Peace and Justice andLegacy Museum.
Advocating on behalf of the poor, the incarcerated and the condemned, Bryan Stevenson has fought racial discrimination and the criminal justice system for over three decades. Six-time Emmy-award winner Peter Kunhardt executive produces and directs this film, offering viewers a rare glimpse into how the poor and people of color are wrongly condemned and the personal toll it has taken on Stevenson and his colleagues as they fight against injustice.
The National Memorial for Peace and Justice and Legacy Museum, located in Montgomery, AL, opened in April 2018 and is just one example of Stevenson’s incredible work. It is the only lynching memorial dedicated to the legacy of African Americans humiliated by racial segregation and Jim Crow.
True Justice: Bryan Stevenson’s Fight for Equality will be available on HBO at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, July 26. For more information, please click here.
