An Oral History of Alabama Civil Rights and the African-American bar

For our 2015 Alabama Super Lawyers Magazine, we delved into civil rights and the African-American bar 60 years after the Montgomery bus boycott and 50 years after the marches from Selma. Be sure to check out our oral history about the experiences of 11 African-American attorneys who graduated law school in six different decades, including Fred Gray, who represented Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr., and U.W. Clemon, the first-ever black federal judge in Alabama.
