Summey talk: “The Life of Elreta Melton Alexander”

UM Alumni Dr. Virginia Summey came to the University of Montana Campus via the UM Humanities Institute to give a talk about Elreta Melton Alexander, a black female lawyer and judge in North Carolina during the mid-twentieth century. The talk focused on Alexander’s life and activism within the US courts. Summey published her book on the same topic, “The Life of Elreta Melton Alexander: Activism Within the Courts,” in May of 2022.
