Located in Montgomery, Alabama, the Memorial to Peace and Justice relates America’s history of racial terror and lynching. In this powerful, off-the-cuff conversation with TED curator Chris Anderson, Bryan Stevenson shares why he hopes the memorial will be a tool to help heal a nation riven by centuries of racial injustice. (Note, Bryan spoke at the end of the TED Talk by architect Michael Murphy, designer of the memorial.) https://www.ted.com/talks/michael_mur... TEDArchive presents previously unpublished talks from TED conferences. Enjoy this unedited talk by Bryan Stevenson. Filmed at TED2016. NOTE: Comments are disabled on this video. We made this difficult decision for the TED Archive because we believe that a well-moderated conversation allows for better commentary from more people and more viewpoints. Studies show that aggressive and hateful comments silence other commenters and drive them away; unfortunately, YouTube’s comment moderation tools are simply not up to the task of allowing us to monitor comments on so many videos at once. (We’d love to see this change, YouTube.) So for now, if you’d like to comment on this talk, please use Facebook, Twitter or G+ to discuss with your networks.
