In honor of Black History Month, we will be exploring the life and work of one of Clark’s most distinguished leaders, the late Dr. D’Army Bailey ’65, LL.D ’10, P’00. Join Laura Robinson, Clark’s university librarian and special guest host, Justin Bailey ’00, for an in-depth discussion of his father’s book, The Education of a Black Radical: A Southern Civil Rights Activist’s Journey, 1959-1964.
After graduating from Clark, Dr. Bailey attended Yale Law School and served as a city councilman in Berkeley, CA. In 1991, he founded the National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, the site of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s assassination. Dr. Bailey practiced law for sixteen years in Memphis before being elected as a judge in the circuit court in Tennessee’s Thirtieth Judicial District in 1990.
