As part of Meridian’s continued effort to support writers and education, we hosted attorneys and contributors to the anthology Voices of Civil Rights Lawyers, John Brittain and Norman Siegel, for a book signing event on October 26th at our office.

Attendees had the opportunity to hear the experiences of these two men as they treaded through some of the most remarkable moments in civil rights history. They reflected on why they became civil liberties lawyers and what still motivates them today. After the reading, the audience had the chance to ask questions and discuss the historical perspective of civil liberties and current issues that make that history relevant today.  We are grateful for John and Norman for sharing their stimulating work with us and the audience.

Thank you to everyone who attended and shared their evening with us!
