Event description

Description

The Judge Kit Carson Roque, Jr. Scholarship Event is an annual scholarship banquet given by JCBA in honor of the late judge, Kit Carson Roque, Jr., an African-American graduate of the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law. The Jackson County Bar Association, and their annual scholarship banquet is dedicated to helping minority students achieve their legal aspirations.

This year, the JCBA is honored for the opportunity to host Dr. Michael Eric Dyson. Dr. Dyson is a renowned scholar, ordained Baptist minister, and public intellectual. His innovative scholarship, combining cultural criticism and biography, focuses on race, religion, popular culture, and contemporary issues that affect American society.

The JCBA will also be presenting several awards during the event, including the Judge Lewis W. Clymer Award, which recognizes an individual for his or her service to the Kansas City community and their promotion of integrity of the legal profession; the Pyramid of Diversity Award, which recognizes a Kansas City area law firm or corporate legal department that has excelled in it's efforts to enhance diversity for minorities in the Kansas City metropolitan area.

Please help us make a difference. We have an ambitious goal this year to raise $75,000. Your contributions are critical and will directly translate into additional scholarships for minority students. By fostering minority students' recruitment and retention in law school, diversity in our legal community will increase.
