Sun Valley Community School’s Parents’ Association will host a free public screening of the HBO feature documentary, True Justice, on Thursday, January 23 at 7:00 p.m. in the school’s theater.
This HBO feature documentary follows Alabama public interest attorney and founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative, Bryan Stevenson’s life and career and the shared struggle to create greater fairness in the criminal justice system. According to HBO, the film highlights watershed moments involving cases and clients, and “offers a rare glimpse into the human struggle that is required when the poor and people of color are wrongly condemned or unfairly sentenced, and explores the personal toll it has taken on Stevenson and his colleagues.” The film shares Stevenson’s experience with the criminal justice system and is told primarily in his own words along with candid interviews with associates, close family members, and clients.
