Book Discussion: Just Mercy
“An unforgettable true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to end mass incarceration in America — from one of the most inspiring lawyers of our time.”
Join us for an in-person discussion of Just Mercy, by Bryan Stevenson. The discussion will be led by Verona resident and Montclair State University Professor Monica Taylor and Associate Professor of Justice Studies Dr. Jason Williams.
Monica Taylor is the Director of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies and a feminist professor and social justice advocate in the Department of Educational Foundations. She also is Academic Co-Editor of The Educational Forum. She writes about feminist pedagogy, self-study, LGBTQ+ inclusive practices, teaching for social justice, and teacher leadership.
Aside from doing research for the academic audience, Dr. Williams is also involved in many public research and information forums, such as The Hampton Institution where he serves as chair of the criminal justice department. He has also published pieces at Uprooting Criminology and Truthout. He has been quoted in notable news outlets such as North Jersey, The San Francisco Chronicle, Newsweek, and other outlets.
