Just Mercy: How Historically Accurate Was The Movie Starring Michael B. Jordan?


As Just Mercy depicts, Bryan Stevenson worked tirelessly to make Walter McMillian the first person in Alabama history to be freed from death row, from a retrial that Stevenson worked hard to secure between 1988 through 1993, when Stevenson’s client was finally released from all charges. Unfortunately, when McMillian was freed from prison, the weight of his time on death row weighed heavily on him, as the film tragically notes toward the end credits. McMillian died in 2013, battling early on-set dementia. When he was in treatment for this disease, McMillian started to believe he was back on death row, as Stevenson wrote in his book, and it painted a sad and painful existence during Walter McMillian’s final few years in this world.
