BRYAN STEVENSON TO RECEIVE THE CHILDREN OF THE 1919 ELAINE MASSACRE BEARING THE SOIL WHERE RICHARD WRIGHT’S UNCLE WAS LYNCHED

For the first time in our literary history, we read in Black Boy, chapter 2, of a lynching – the disappearance of Uncle Silas Hoskins – seen through the eyes of a child. For the first time in our literary history , a Black man, whose lynching in 1916 has remained a cold case for 106 years and who happens to be Richard Wright’s favorite uncle, will at last be memorialized at the National Lynching Museum.

Opinion: 'Just Mercy' author Bryan Stevenson will help get Greenville 'United for Change'

“The moral arc of the universe is long, but it bends towards justice.”. I remember the first time I heard Bryan Stevenson reference this quote by 19th century clergyman Theodore Parker (it also was included in Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s well-known speech at the National Cathedral in 1968) at the end of his 2012 TED talk. Its impact was just one of many powerful “aha” moments I have experienced through following the work of Stevenson, founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative.
