To all my elder friends: Stevenson frames his talk through what he has learned from elders, because that inheritance is where he finds strength for the journey. In this setting, that's transgressive.

The annual commemoration of one of history's most famous executions seems right for posting this. Bryan Stevenson has made a life of struggling in Alabama against the death penalty and other miscarriages of justice. This video is a TED talk, but don't let that discourage you. Stevenson is not hip and groovy; he is serious and realistic. Something like half a million people have played this video; if you are not one, this is your chance.
