Past is Present
"We are haunted in America by our history of racial inequality," says human rights lawyer Bryan Stevenson. "Justice is a constant struggle." In 1989, Stevenson created the Equal Justice Initiative to provide legal services to poor and incarcerated people. Almost 30 years later, the EJI created The National Memorial for Peace and Justice and The Legacy Museum to bring America's history of segregation and racial terror to the forefront. "I think it's important that we understand all the ugly details," says Stevenson, "because those are the things that actually give rise to what might allow us to one day claim something really beautiful."
