At this invite-only event at the Supreme Court of the United States, we’ll honor African-American State Supreme Court Justices, past and present, as arbiters on the ultimate judicial tribunals for the appeal of state legal issues. By carving a distinct path in national jurisprudence, they served as vital mentors, role models and precedent-setters in our communities.

Participants: Hon. Reuben Anderson (MS), Hon. Robert Benham (GA), Hon. George Brown (TN), Henry E. Frye, Jr (NC), Hon. Charles Thomas (VA), Hon. Richard Mays (AR), and surprise guests.
