  • Summary

  • Does justice have a soundtrack? Harvard-trained lawyer Bryan Stevenson has made it his mission to challenge racism in the criminal justice system. He’s the author of the best-selling book “Just Mercy” and was played by Michael B. Jordan in the movie of the same name. Stevenson and Common hold a fascinating conversation about life on death row, the role of music in inspiration, and the best way to bravely live a life that matters.

un-A-Brit-edged and unapologetic

Can Mr Stevenson audioread George Orwell's 1984 for Audible? Our people, especially Americans, need representation in this venture. He would bring a wider audience to this Bible-prophetic book.

I followed because of this

I loved listening to Bryan speak of his love for music and justice and when he recognized his purpose. The conversation between Common and Byran can be put on repeat as it's a call to action. This conversation alone made me follow Common's work.
