We are nearing the end of the semester, which means that these discussions are going to become slightly more unstructured so that they may become more student-driven. This is an intentional attempt to assess student creativity, but it is not intended to cause confusion, so please contact me if you have any questions about how to proceed with a discussion.
The video that you are required to watch for this week’s discussion pertains to the United States criminal justice system and the problems identified by Bryan Stevenson, founder of the Equal Justice Initiative. In this video, Stevenson weaves his personal narrative and stories of his experiences as a lawyer, which allows the viewer the opportunity to understand why Stevenson has developed his particular perspective regarding the criminal justice system. I have provided you with two links to the same video, just in case one of them does not work. The presentation is roughly 25 minutes long.
For your original post, please highlight and describe the part of this video that you feel is most significant and connect that content to our class material (i.e. something mentioned in the textbook). Be sure to explain that connection in at least one paragraph.
