Rosemary Kittrell Memorial Lecture Series – Bryan Stevenson
November 10, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
On November 10, 2022 at 7 p.m., Bryan Stevenson will deliver the 2nd Annual Rosemary Kittrell Memorial Lecture, “American Injustice: Mercy, Humanity and Making a Difference” in the Sanctuary (with overflow in Williams Hall) of Trinity Presbyterian Church. Free and open to the public, the lecture will focus on what people of faith should do in the face of injustice.
Bryan Stevenson is founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) and author of Just Mercy. EJI is a human rights organization in Montgomery, Alabama where Stevenson established the Legacy Museum and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice in 2018. These institutions chronicle the legacy of slavery, lynching, and racial segregation, as well as the connection to mass incarceration and contemporary issues of racial bias.
Under Stevenson’s leadership, EJI has won major legal challenges eliminating excessive and unfair sentencing, exonerating innocent death row prisoners, confronting abuse of the incarcerated and the mentally ill, and aiding children prosecuted as adults. Stevenson’s book Just Mercy won critical acclaim from the New York Times, Time Magazine, CNN, and many other news sources. The book was made into a major motion picture.
Stevenson is a graduate of the Harvard Law School and the Harvard School of Government.
Doors open at 6:00 p.m. Please present your ticket at the door. Seating is available on a first-come first-served basis. A ticket guarantees you a seat, but not necessarily in the Sanctuary. Overflow seating will be available in Williams Hall with a video stream of the lecture.
