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.
