This year’s event will celebrate the legacy of newly-retired state senator, The Honorable Henry L. Marsh. As a young attorney in 1964, Senator Marsh helped argue and win Griffin v. Prince Edward, the U.S. Supreme Court case that reopened Prince Edward County’s schools and saved public education for the nation.
8NEWS Richmond award-winning anchor Ava-Joye Burnett will be the evening’s host. Past banquets have drawn over 600 guests. With 2014 marking the 50th anniversary of Griffin, and the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, this year is sure to be the most memorable yet.
