Mills Distinguished Lecture Hosts Author Bryan Stevenson

Include ‘Poor, Excluded,’

Mills’ Lecturer Exhorts

Bryan Stevenson, above, author of “Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption,” presents this year’s Mills Distinguished Lecture at the SUNY Oneonta Alumni Field House this evening. Founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, Stevenson spoke on ways the audience might go about changing the world. “Our capacity to change our world is waiting for us with the poor and excluded.” he said. “We cannot get to where we want to go if we are unwilling to change our narrative.” He went to highlight the importance of telling the truth and staying hopeful and to be willing to talk about things that are uncomfortable and inconvenient. At right: David Brenner,  a College Council member, and Sid and Deb Parisian sit enraptured. (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)
