First Full-Length Biography of Judge Wisdom Published
John Minor Wisdom is one the least publicly recognized heroes of the US civil rights movement despite having written many of the landmark decisions instrumental in desegregating the American South. That has changed now. By writing Champion of Civil Rights: Judge John Minor Wisdom (Louisiana State University Press, January 2009), Joel William Friedman (Tulane) has performed a great service by documenting Judge Wisdom's substantial legal contributions and political work at a critical time in the history of the South.
Highly recommended. [JH]
