As part of our Black History Month celebrations, we're going to the movies! Our DAB film guides, Jerry Loftus & Robin Lofton, will be at the front of the UGC De Brouckère at 18:45 for the 19:15 showing of "Just Mercy." We'll head to a nearby bar for drinks and discussion after.
Here an excerpt from the Austin Chronicle review: "Just Mercy stars Michael B. Jordan as Bryan Stevenson, a newly degreed lawyer fresh out of Harvard Law in 1989, who moves to Monroeville, Ala., to found the Equal Justice Initiative and provide pro bono legal representation to death row inmates in a state where no prisoners had ever been freed from that sentence. It’s a true-life story based on Stevenson’s book and focuses on one of the first cases the new lawyer brought to trial, that of Walter McMillian (played by Jamie Foxx, who delivers some of his best work since Ray)."
