Speaking at the Alabama Power Company’s “Making History Now” Black History Month luncheon, Equal Justice Initiative founder and The Constitution Project contributor Bryan Stevenson argued that justice cannot be advanced without some discomfort. Stevenson urged his audience to have the courage to get close enough to feeling what they’re trying to correct. That discomfort, Stevenson explained, generates power, and from that power comes the ability to create change. To hear more compelling ideas from Stevenson, watch his 20-minute TED lecture, “We need to talk about injustice.” The lecture, viewed over 1.4 million times, generated a record-setting standing ovation for the TED lecture series. You can also watch him in a number of our films, including One Man Changes the Constitution about the fight to expand the right to counsel, and Jury Selection: Edmonson v. Leesville.
