Spangenberg Shibley & Liber Co-Sponsors a February 19th Event Supporting Black History Month

Categories: News
Spangenberg Shibley & Liber LLP is pleased to co-sponsor a lecture and discussion with award-winning journalist and bestselling legal writer, Mark Curriden as part of Cleveland Marshall College of Law’s commemoration of Black History Month. Mark Curriden’s compelling book, Contempt of Court: A Turn-of-the-Century Lynching That Launched a Hundred Years of Federalism, uses interviews, court transcripts, and newspaper accounts to bring immediacy to the historic events in this precedent-setting case of a black man, Ed Johnson, lynched despite a Supreme Court order staying his execution. Mr. Curriden’s book revisits an overlooked Supreme Court decision that changed forever how justice is carried out in the United States.
