Emancipation : the Making of the Black Lawyer, 1844-1944
by Smith Jr, J. Clay

Overview -
Emancipation The Making of the Black Lawyer, 1844-1944 J. Clay Smith, Jr. Foreword by Justice Thurgood Marshall "A monumental achievement."--Southern University Law Review "Emancipation is the first truly comprehensive reference book covering the first one hundred years of African Americans in the legal profession. Other legal historians and biographers must take Smith's work as a starting point for gauging the impact Black lawyers and institutions have had upon the evolution of the American legal profession."--Black Issues in Higher Education "The sheer quantity of information contained in Emancipation is overwhelming; the impact of page after page of data, stories and lives, and the thousands of detailed, extensive footnotes and documentation is simply overpowering. It is a monumental achievement."--Southern University Law Review "A remarkable piece of scholarship. . . . Emancipation contains a wealth of information previously unknown even to those who consider themselves well-informed about African-American history. . . . It will, I am sure, serve as the definitive authority on the history of black lawyers for years to come."--St. Louis Post-Dispatch Winner of the W. E. B. Du Bois Book Award of the National Conference of Black Political Scientists "Emancipation is an important and impressive work; one cannot read it without being inspired by the legal acumen, creativity, and resiliency these pioneer lawyers displayed. . . . It should be read by everyone interested in understanding the road African-Americans have traveled and the challenges that lie ahead."--From the Foreword, by Justice Thurgood Marshall J.
