Weekend Reads: “A Lawyer’s Journey”

A Lawyer's Journey: The Morris Dees Story (Biography)A Lawyer’s Journey: The Morris Dees Story by Morris Dees

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was not an easy book to read, because of the subject matter. However, it’s still important and I recommend it highly.

Attorney Morris Dees, founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center, writes frankly about his background (including plans to become a minister) and the various civil rights cases in which he becomes involved before taking on the biggest of big guns in the traditional South: the Klan.

There are discussions of lynchings and other Klan violence, as well as historical moments in the civil rights movements, from Dees’ perspective of a defender of minority rights and foe of hate groups.

As such hate groups have been emboldened in the current environment, Dees’ work is more important than ever. As mentioned above, I highly recommend this book to all who are concerned about social justice matters.
