March 10 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join the Emerson Prison Initiative for their spring event, a screening of True Justice: Bryan Stevenson’s Fight for Equality, followed by a Q&A with Rahsaan Hall and Tanekwah Hinds from the American Civil Liberties Union.
True Justice: Bryan Stevenson’s Fight for Equality follows public interest attorney Bryan Stevenson’s struggle to create greater fairness in the criminal justice system, and shows how racial injustice emerged, evolved, and continues to threaten the country, challenging viewers to confront it.
For more than three decades, 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 system. Following the film, Rahsaan Hall and Tanekwah Hinds from the ACLU will lead a Q&A.
Rahsaan Hall is the director of the Racial Justice Program for the ACLU Massachusetts. Through legislative advocacy, litigation and community engagement, the program works on issues that deeply impact communities of color and historically disenfranchised communities.
Tanekwah Hinds is the Racial Justice Community Advocate for the ACLU Massachusetts where she develops relationships and creates advocacy opportunities for organizations, leaders, and activists in communities of color.
