Bryan Stevenson, founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) joins us for the second event in the Visualizing Abolition online event series.
Bryan Stevenson is a widely acclaimed public interest lawyer who has tirelessly worked over the last two decades to challenge the racial and economic injustices of mass incarceration in the United States. Stevenson has also been at the forefront of the creation of two cultural sites, The Legacy Museum and The National Memorial for Peace and Justice. For Visualizing Abolition, Stevenson will discuss how those institutions relate to his legal social justice initiatives. The wide-ranging conversation with Gina Dent will focus on the role images, art, and culture can have in how people see and understand the legacies of history, as well as how re-envisioning history can enliven contemporary struggles against racial inequality and the criminal justice system.
