Event description
Detroit Mercy Law ushers in Black History Month by hosting an evening that acknowledges and celebrates our history, our present, our future.

About this Event

The event includes:

  • A portrait unveiling of Henry H. Tarrant ’22, our first known African American graduate.
  • Remarks by Godfrey Dillard, a civil rights trailblazer and one of the lawyers who represented BLSA in their lawsuit against the university in the early 1980s.
  • The launch of the new Henry H. Tarrant Award for Black Student Excellence.
  • An introduction of the Association of Black Law Alumni (ABLA), led by Judge Terrance A. Keith ’84, and ABLA’s new scholarship for African American students.

Each of these events marks a significant part of our law school’s history. Together they show our progress, our commitment, and our community.
