Howard University School of Law is hosting the Seventh Annual James M. Nabrit, Jr. Lecture Series on February 18 in the Moot Court Room. This years’ Lecture Series will feature U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa P. Jackson, and Louisiana Supreme Court Justice Bernette J. Johnson.
Administrator Jackson will discuss the importance of environmentalism and environmental justice; while Justice Johnson will pay tribute to the life and legacy of Alexander Pierre “A.P.” Tureaud, Sr., a legendary New Orleans civil rights attorney and Howard Law graduate. In addition to Justice Johnson’s speech, excerpts from the documentary Journey for Justice: The A.P. Tureaud Story will be shown, along with an unveiling of his portrait.
This special event will promote environmental justice as a prominent civil rights issue in the 21st century and honor a father to the civil rights movement in Louisiana.
