About “SuperSoul Sunday” – Just Mercy with Bryan Stevenson
Oprah Winfrey talks to human rights activist and civil rights attorney Bryan Stevenson for a conversation about living your calling, giving a voice to the powerless and how his life changed by meeting people on death row. As a New York University Law Professor and Founder/Executive Director of the Equal Justice Initiative in Montgomery, Alabama, Bryan has spent more than three decades fighting poverty and challenging racial discrimination in the criminal justice system. He shares with Oprah the spiritual connection we inevitably make when discovering things in others we haven’t discovered yet, and his view that we are not fully evolved as human beings until we care about universal human rights and basic dignity. Bryan has won major legal challenges eliminating excessive and unfair sentencing, exonerating innocent death row prisoners, and confronting abuse of the incarcerated. They also discuss his New York Times bestselling book, “Just Mercy,” and the transformative power of mercy and forgiveness.
