A Carroll One Book presentation

2019; 2 h 16 m; PG-13 for thematic content including some racial epithets

After graduating from Harvard, Bryan Stevenson heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned or those not afforded proper representation. One of his first cases is that of Walter McMillian, who is sentenced to die in 1987 for the murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite evidence proving his innocence. In the years that follow, Stevenson encounters racism and legal and political maneuverings as he tirelessly fights for McMillian’s life.

This free screening is presented in conjunction with this year’s Carroll One Book pick, Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson. Join book clubs from around the county throughout April to listen, learn, share, and reflect on this powerful memoir. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion.
