Bryan Stevenson Equal Justice: A great work of literature in our collection of African-American children’s books. One Bryan Stevenson’s first cases was that of Walter McMillian a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy political machination and legal brinksmanship and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever.
