Earl B. Dickerson Exhibit at the Law School
The D’Angelo Law Library has created an exhibit to celebrate the centennial of Earl B. Dickerson, the first African American to earn a J.D. at the Law School. In addition to excerpts from “Remarks by…Dickerson on the Occasion of the 35th Anniversary of the Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr….” it also contains photos of the two men. One photo shows Dickerson at a rally of King’s, another shows King touring Supreme Life’s offices with Dickerson; Supreme Life Insurance Company would become the largest African American owned insurance company in the North. A final photo is of Dickerson sitting in his office at Supreme Life, with a photo of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X.
