Examining the frequently under-appreciated legacy of Johnny Cochran as attorney-activist, this panel discussion will use the fight for the release of political prisoner Geronimo Pratt to discuss the important legacy of Black lawyers in social justice causes, the continued need for lawyer-activists in the Black community, and the role of attorneys in the work to educate the community on the realities of the prison system as well as efforts to free innocent men and women.  


Panelists include Dr. Ahmad Rahman of the University of Michigan-Dearborn and attorney Jeffrey L. Edison.  FREE and open to the public.  For more information please call (313) 494-5800.
