Hidden Legal Figures: Conversations with the Unsung
Northeast Georgia is the home to several living Hidden Legal Figures who, each in their own way, were pioneers in the civil rights movement. Join us for the latest installment of Hidden Legal Figures: Conversations with the Unsung presented by The Arc of Justice Project in partnership with the University of Georgia School of Law, for an evening of "living history" honoring groundbreaking attorneys Ken Dious, Dr. Barbara Geter, John Mell Clark, and Willie Woodruff. This program is co-sponsored by the Davenport-Benham Black Law Student Association, with support from the Richard B. Russell Special Collections Library. The program will be moderated by Athens-Clarke County Chief Magistrate Judge Patricia Barron and UGA law student leader and Davenport-Benham Black Law Student Association Vice-Chair DeShon Dixon. Together they will conduct a focused conversation on "Memories, Milestones and Mentorship" with our panelists.
This event is part of the State Bar of Georgia Arc of Justice Project, which seeks to recognize the historic role of the legal profession in the Civil and Human Rights Movement. It is open to all members of the law school community and the general public.
The event will start in the law school's Rotunda.
