He Helped Paved the Way for Modern Activism
The book covers the exemplary life of Moorfield Storey, a White lawyer, president of the American Bar Association, and the first NAACP president. It gives a glimpse into his childhood and time serving Senator Charles Sumner as his private secretary and how that experience gave him a full view of public affairs. It tells how his relationship with the Emersons, his parents, and other prominent leaders helped him shape and reform the course of history and paved the way for modern activism with his legal skills.
Moorfield Storey observed gaps and inequalities in the system and sought to change them. Through his wit and charm, he inspired, uplifted, and enriched many lives, irrespective of their race or cultural background. This book chronicles his legal victories for the NAACP and Black Americans particularly. His legal victory set the groundwork for the historic case Brown v. The Board of Education.
