Morrison about her new book, Murder on Shades Mountain: The Legal Lynching of Willie Peterson and the Struggle for Justice in Jim Crow Birmingham (Duke University Press).  This riveting account of Jim Crow-era injustice exposes how courtrooms could function like lynch mobs when the defendant was African American.  A reception in the Noojin Courtyard will follow at 4:30pm.  Jointly presented by the Bessemer Bar Association and the Birmingham Bar Association Diversity/Inclusivity Committee.  Please RSVP to jbuettner@birminghambar.org.  Application pending for one hour MCLE credit for this free event.
