On Friday, January 10th Washington Innocence Project proudly partnered with Microsoft’s Criminal Justice Reform Initiative to host an opening-night screening of Just Mercy based on Bryan Stevenson’s book of the same name, starring Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx, and Brie Larson.
Just Mercy tells the story of Bryan Stevenson and his history-making battles for justice in Alabama. One of his most incendiary cases is that of Walter McMillian, a black man wrongly convicted of murder and sentenced to death. Bryan refuses to back down as he fights to prove Walter’s innocence, with the system stacked against them.
