Just Mercy: A Book Study

Join Rev. Frank Dew, chaplaincy program director at Greensboro Urban Ministry, and The Servant Leadership School for a powerful look at our justice system and how we can seek justice for all.

Just Mercy: A Book Study begins on Tuesday, January 19, and will run through March 22. The study will meet from 12:30 to 2 p.m. at Greensboro Urban Ministry, 305 W. Gate City Blvd.

“Just Mercy” captures stories of people in the justice system and the undercurrents of racial bias, unfairness and brutality that help to bring them there. The book was written by African American lawyer Bryan Stevenson, who as a 23-year-old Harvard law student found his calling to work for justice and defend those who are often least able to secure adequate representation.

Retired Anglican Bishop Desmond Tutu says of the book: “’Just Mercy’ should be read by people of conscience in every civilized country in the world to discover what happens when revenge and retribution replace justice and mercy.”
