Event description

Description

“We are at a time when many…have abandoned the respect for the rule of law. Nothing less than our civilized society is at stake.”
­- Noah Parden
“It is not enough that you do your duty. The richness of life lies in the performance which is above and beyond the call of duty.”
­- Judge Elbert Parr Tuttle

One handled the appeal of a ghastly mob-lynching that resulted in a landmark United States Supreme Court case. The other led the greatest judicial efforts of the 20th century. Noah Parden and Judge Elbert Parr Tuttle were towering figures in the law, yet they are largely unknown to the general public.

Join us as Mark Curriden, author of the ABA award winning book, Contempt of Court and Prof. Anne Emanuel, author of Elbert Parr Tuttle: Chief Justice of the Civil Rights Revolution discuss the legacy of these two giants at Hidden Legal Figures: Conversations with the Unsung presented by The Arc of Justice Institute. Their reflection of the legal efforts that led to and shaped the modern civil rights movement promises to be unforgettable.

Book signing and reception immediately following.This event has been approved for 3.5 continuing legal education hours by ICLE.

Hidden Legal Figures is supported, in part, by a grant from The Georgia Bar Foundation.
