No one should be defined by their worst moment, and you shouldn't be better off under the law if you're rich and guilty than if you're poor an innocent. Bryan Stevenson in his New York Times best-seller, Just Mercy, confronts the inequities in American culture with a plea for real justice and real mercy. Wayne traveled to Tulsa, OK to discuss this powerful book with his friend Tom Mohn, who in addition to being a man of grace and compassion, also traveled to Selma, Alabama fifty years ago to participate in the march at Selma. They discuss race relations, illegal immigration, and how the current political climate rewards the conflict instead of seeking compassionate solutions. They discuss the importance of developing proximity to other cultures so we don't become trapped by only seeing the world through our own eyes.
