What does Bryan Stevenson do for self-care? How does he guard his hope? I need to know.
Black women like Minnie McMillian continue to amaze me. The movie is telling me to focus on Eva Ansley, and bless her, but I am focused on Miss Minnie. #JustMercy
What is Alabama’s municipalities’ reaction to #JustMercy? Their dirty drawers are out in the open. (But I guess that hasn’t stopped systemic racism in the US before.) The 90s weren’t that long ago. Sheriff Tate freshly retired in 2019.
I read the book, yet the constant drumbeat of entrenched, codified, systemic physical, psychological, and generational violence of law enforcement against black people depicted in the movie still took my breath away. #JustMercy
Rob Morgan deserves all the awards. I found myself taking deep breaths with him. “We are all with you.” #JustMercy
The leitmotif of black gospel music in #JustMercy is a reminder: our suffering is deep and our faith tested. We “cherish the old rugged cross” because we understand it in an embodied way. It’s not abstract. We have to lean on the Lord; ain’t nothing else to lean on.
Read the book. But go ahead and see the movie #JustMercy and then donate to @eji_org.
