Bryan Stevenson: We need to talk about an injustice

Re-used for March 6, 2017

Hi and welcome. My name is Don.
This talk to a Ted Audience gave me hope.
It is a very powerful lesson.

Published on Mar 5, 2012 In an engaging and personal talk -- with cameo appearances from his grandmother and Rosa Parks -- human rights lawyer Bryan Stevenson shares some hard truths about America's justice system, starting with a massive imbalance along racial lines: a third of the country's black male population has been incarcerated at some point in their lives. These issues, which are wrapped up in America's unexamined history, are rarely talked about with this level of candor, insight and persuasiveness.
