Through a steadfast dedication to justice and service, renowned civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump has established himself as one of the nation’s foremost lawyers and advocates for social justice, earning the nickname “Black America’s Attorney General.” His legal acumen has ensured that those marginalized in American society are protected by their nation’s contract with its constituency.
With the heartbreaking murders of unarmed Black citizens, America’s conversation about racial equity has become a global movement. At the heartbeat of that movement are the families seeking justice. Crump represents the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Nakia Jones, Danny Ray Thomas and Stephon Clark, as well as the residents of Flint, Michigan.
Through a moderated conversation with Venetria K. Patton, head of the School of Interdisciplinary Studies and professor of English at Purdue University, Crump will discuss his professional experiences as an attorney surrounding racial injustice and inequities in the United States.
