The University of Mississippi School of Law is honoring the school’s pioneering African-American graduates by hosting a weekend of events to commemorate 50 years of diversity at Ole Miss Law.
“The Law School is excited to host this event celebrating 50 years of diversity, says Associate Professor of Law Donna Davis. “Please join us in hearing from our graduates. We are honored to have the opportunity to recognize them and their contributions.”
The event will take place from August 24-26 and will kick off with a welcome reception hosted by the Law School’s new dean, Susan Duncan. The rest of the weekend will include panels where the school’s earliest graduates will discuss their experiences during the years following desegregation and reflect on how those experiences shaped their lives. Graduates from the 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s, and 10s, will also share their recollections and how their experiences changed across the decades.
