More About Just Mercy; Book and Movie Discussions

Allegany County Library System is excited to continue to encourage important and engaging conversations in our community about race in America. We invite you to join us in a virtual series of discussions centered around racial and economic injustice as depicted in Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Equal Justice Initiative founder Bryan Stevenson.

Beginning on March 3rd, discussions will be held every other Wednesday night through the end of April, totaling five events. Each discussion will be focused on themes from certain chapters in the book and the last event will be centered around the movie.

March 3: Introduction – Chapter Four: The Rugged Cross
March 17: Chapter Five: Of the Coming of John – Chapter Eight: All God’s Children
March 31: Chapter Nine: I’m Here – Chapter Twelve: Mother, Mother
April 14: Chapter Thirteen: Recovery – End

Just Mercy book and movie are available to request from the Allegany County Library System.

Books can also be purchased at The Book Center in Cumberland and at Main Street Books in Frostburg.
