Bending Towards Justice: An Excellent TED Talk

Human rights lawyer Bryan Stevenson uses personal stories to connect with the US justice system and into the arch of human rights, race and inequality in what might be one of the best TED talks given. It is worth your time.

He concludes saying:
I've come to TED because many of you understand that the moral arc of the universe is long, but it bends toward justice. That we cannot be full evolved human beings until we care about human rights and basic dignity. That all of our survival is tied to the survival of everyone. Our visions of technology and design and entertainment and creativity have to be married with visions of humanity, compassion and justice. And more than anything, for those of you who share that, I simply come to tell you, 'Keep your eyes on the prize. Hold on.'
