Late one night in the summer of 2010, Shannon Sedgwick Davis—a lawyer, human rights advocate, and Texas mom to two young boys—met with a Ugandan general to discuss an unconventional plan to stop Joseph Kony, a murderous warlord who’d terrorized communities in four countries across Central and East Africa with his Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). Her memoir, TO STOP A WARLORD: My Story of Justice, Grace and the Fight for Peace, is the first time she tells the story in its entirety of how she, the charitable foundation she leads, and a multitude of local unsung heroes, dedicated individuals, and philanthropists came together and wrote a playbook to stop injustice on an unprecedented scale.
