Bryan Stevenson of Equal Justice Initiative to speak at UC San Diego
In a groundbreaking digital experience Equal Justice Initiative in partnership with Google, produced the Lynching in America site content including EJI’s in-depth research and data with the stories of lynching victims, as told by their descendants. Through six audio stories, and a short documentary, Uprooted, you both hear and feel the impact of this dark time in history on generations of families.
MacArthur Fellow, Founder and Executive Director of Equal Justice Initiative, Bryan Stevenson, will be among the featured speakers taking the stage during Helen Edison Lecture Series at UCSD on January 17, 2019.
Stevenson’s Equal Justice Initiative is the nonprofit organization behind the recently opened National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Alabama, which is dedicated to the victims of white supremacy in this country through history.
The Helen Edison Lecture Series is a free event. It’s the result of a major gift from the late Helen Edison, a San Diego philanthropist who supported numerous local educational, cultural and arts efforts. In accordance with the gift, since 1985 the series has presented free public lectures on issues that advance humanitarian purposes and objectives.
