Honoring the Memory of Judge Damon Keith
The International Civil Rights Center & Museum deeply feels the loss of Damon Keith, one of the most prominent African American judges on the federal bench, who upheld civil rights and civil liberties in influential rulings that included a 1971 decision barring the Nixon administration from conducting warrantless domestic wiretaps. Through it all, he remained open to sharing his wisdom with others. Keith’s determination to challenge the injustices of the law came at a time when there were few black lawyers, and earned him the respect of his peers. Keith authored landmark rulings on civil liberties. He spent his life defending the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence.
Every individual who works with this institution makes a pledge; that we are to uphold the legacy of the A&T Four, to chronicle the civil rights movement's historical and contemporary effects, and to bring down barriers of all kind that divide and weaken us as human beings. It is that drive that calls us to strengthen ourselves, our community, and our world.
