GREENSBORO — N.C. A&T is hosting a virtual presentation by author Bryan Stevenson on Wednesday.

The free presentation, “Race, Poverty and the Criminal Justice System in America,” will take place at 5 p.m. and is open to the public. Students will have an opportunity afterward to ask questions. 

It's part of the university's Text-in-Community Program. Stevenson's book "Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption," is this year' campus read. 

In the memoir, Stevenson shares his experiences building the Equal Justice Initiative, a nonprofit law office in Montgomery, Alabama, and defending Walter McMillian, a man who spent time on death row and whose conviction was overturned by the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals in 1993. 

The book was made into a 2019 film starring Michael B. Jordan.
