The Dickerson Centennial celebrates an historic milestone for our institution: the 100th anniversary of the graduation of one of our most distinguished alumni, Earl B. Dickerson. Last October, our first conference brought together legal scholars and historians. Our second conference brings together artists, activists, community leaders, and lawyers to celebrate Dickerson and his continuing legacy today. This event was held on April 16, 2021.
