More Just Mercy Book Discussions Added; Led by Alonna Berry on Tuesday, September 24 and October 29, 2019, 6-7:30 pm

In light of the popularity of Christy Taylor's two Just Mercy book discussions offered in conjunction with MHS's Walking into Greatness: Bryan A. Stevenson, MHS will host two more book groups on Tuesday, September 24 and October 29 from 6-7:30 pm led by Stevenson’s cousin Alonna Berry, the founder and chairwoman of The Bryan Allen Stevenson School of Excellence scheduled to open in Sussex County in 2021. As a trustee of MHS and part of the Stevenson exhibition team, Berry brings a unique perspective to her discussion of Just Mercy. She says, “I am honored to be a part of an important conversation happening in our country addressing the spoken and unspoken parts of our history, as both are equally meaningful and required to push us all forward. I hope this book club with continue that conversation here, in our local context of Sussex County, so together we can honor, accept and move forward.”
