‘America’s Mandela’ Bryan Stevenson

stevensonCivil rights lawyer Bryan Stevenson, on October 14, urged Rider University students to create more justice in the world.

We never dealt with that and, because of that, we’re suffering,” he said. It doesn’t take much to create conflict and tension. All of this police violence on the streets has created so much frustration and anger because there is this presumption of guilt.”
