In this episode...
We speak with Judge, Attorney, Historian, and Professor John Browning about righting historic wrongs. Prof. Browning has dedicated the past few years correcting the racial wrongs of State Bars. Last year, he secured admission for an African American man who aspired to be a lawyer in the 1880s but was denied bar admission because of his race. He is currently petitioning the New York State Bar to admit Ely S. Parker, a Native American War hero and the First Commissioner of Native American Affairs.
