Thank you to everyone who attended the Stanford Multicultural Alumni Club, Cardinal Young Alumni Club, and Stanford Club of San Diego's Social Justice Movie Series in July and September, in which we have explored the themes of mass incarceration and judicial inequality.

We are excited to invite you to the capstone of this specific trilogy: a showing and discussion of True Justice: Bryan Stevenson's Fight for Equality, a feature documentary which focuses on lawyer Bryan Stevenson’s life and career—particularly his indictment of the U.S. criminal justice system for its role in codifying modern systemic racism—and tracks the intertwined histories of slavery, lynching, segregation, and mass incarceration.

As a special bonus, Stanford alumna Novella Coleman, '04, MA '05, who previously worked at Equal Justice Initiative directly with Mr. Stevenson, will be joining us for both pre-movie remarks as well as post-movie Q&A.  

We have obtained permission to stream this movie over Zoom, and the schedule for the afternoon will be as follows:

2:00 pmLog into Zoom for welcome and introductions, including pre-movie remarks from Novella

2:20 pm - Stay on Zoom for movie showing (1 hr and 42 min running time, but we'll skip the credits in the interest of time)

4 pm - Post-movie discussion groups via moderated Zoom breakout rooms

4:30 pm - Return to main Zoom room for Q&A with Novella and a final wrap-up with John and Joyce
