CTI Hosts “Just Mercy” Movie Screening & Follow-Up Conversation for CMS Teachers

As part of our commitment to racial equity and social justice, CTI co-hosted a screening of Just Mercy, the new film based on the powerful memoir by Equal Justice Initiative Founder Bryan Stevenson, starring Michael B. Jordan, Brie Larson and Jamie Foxx. Former CTI Fellow Larry Bosc organized the event for 60 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools teachers at the Cinemark Bistro on Jan. 10, the movie’s opening date in Charlotte.

CTI plans to host a follow-up conversation about the film, as well as the book and the Equal Justice Initiative’s work, on Saturday, Feb. 8. Contact CTI Director Scott Gartlan at scott.gartlan@uncc.edu for more information.
