Just Mercy is what we need!
About Just Mercy:
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.
In My Opinion:
My emotions were at an all-time high by the end of this movie. Being somewhat of an activist myself, I felt every moment of this film. This movie was triumphant when it comes to showing the intellect of the African- American community. I love whenever we as people can use the system in the correct way as opposed to being manipulated by it. In my experience with the courts, I have seen first hand how it is designed to exploit the poor people. Just Mercy has done an amazing job of exposing the evil and corrupt people who take advantage of the less fortunate.
This is one of my favorite movies. I think Jamie Foxx is a GOAT in all he does. Michael B. Jordan has been the man to watch lately. Jordan has played in some extremely memorable roles. From Black Panther to Fruitville Station, Jordan has been on fire. They could have made no better stars to play the parts.
The True Justice Movement.
I am in support of the Equal Justice Initiative and ask that you join me in the fight for Equal Justice under the rule of law for the following reasons.
In the last half-century, America has become the nation with the highest rate of incarceration in the world, authorized the execution of hundreds of condemned prisoners, and continued to struggle to recover from a long history of racial injustice. For more than three decades, Alabama public interest attorney Bryan Stevenson, founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative, has advocated on behalf of the poor, the incarcerated and the condemned, seeking to eradicate racial discrimination in the criminal justice system. An intimate portrait of this remarkable man, True Justice: Bryan Stevenson’s Fight for Equality follows his struggle to create greater fairness in the system and shows how racial injustice emerged, evolved, and continues to threaten the country, challenging viewers to confront it.
