The A.P. Tureaud, Sr. Black Alumni Chapter of the LSU Alumni Association invites you to its Annual Legends Forum, to be held Friday, November 9, 2011 from 7-9 PM in the LSU Union Atchafalaya Room. This year, we have elected—for good cause—to recognize three ‘legends.’ They are:
- Justice Bernette Joshua Johnson, first black Chief Justice of the Louisiana Supreme Court and alumna of the LSU Paul M Hebert Law Center; and
- Maxine Crump, Community activist and LSU alumna; first black female to integrate LSU’s residence halls
- The Late Judge Ralph Tyson, U.S. District Court and alumnus of both LSU and the LSU Paul M Hebert Law Center
In addition to honoring our legends, we will have a panel discussion entitled, “Affordable Care Act: A Good Thing for the Black Community?” which will examine the President’s landmark legislation and the implications for African Americans.
Tell your classmates and friends! We hope to see you there!
