The Super Lawyers Editorial team was back at it this past Thursday, garnering a Silver Award in the Feature Story category from the Minnesota Magazine & Publishing Association (MMPA) at their annual gala held at Aria in Minneapolis.
The award-winning feature article, ‘We’ve Come a Rather Remarkable Way,’ explores civil rights and the African-American bar 60 years after the Montgomery bus boycott and 50 years after the marches in Selma that led to the Voting Rights Act of 1965. In the oral history, we spoke with 11 African-American attorneys who graduated law school in six different decades about their experiences in the legal world, including U.W. Clemon, J. Mason Davis, and Fred D. Gray, who represented both Rosa Parks and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during and after the Montgomery bus boycott.
“We are honored to receive the award. We are even more honored by having the opportunity to tell the stories of all of the remarkable individuals featured,” said Ron Cahill, Editorial Director of Super Lawyers.
This is the 16th journalism award Super Lawyers has won since it was acquired by Thomson Reuters in 2010. For more information on these awards, please visit: http://www.superlawyers.com/about/editorial.html.
