Attorney James D. Montgomery, Sr
With the advent of a new year, COAL will use the January Breakfast as a positive and inspirational kickoff to 2019, a year that starts out both as one characterized by the myriad of barriers that challenge our ability to address our most intransigent issues and yet one that will present a number of truly substantive opportunities to make real change happen for our community.
With this goal in mind, COAL is honored to host legendary Attorney James D. Montgomery, Sr., one of our community’s most revered and respected leaders and legal professionals, a nationally-recognized expert trial attorney and champion for justice, as our guest speaker.
Join COAL as Attorney Montgomery reflects on his life and career, as well as shares insights on race and the law he’s gained over decades and captured in his recently published autobiography, Full Circle – Race, Law & Justice: Inside My Life: Attorney James D. Montgomery, Sr., co-authored with Walter M. Perkins and Michelle Thompson.
Additionally, in a year in which we have a a new Illinois governor, a Chicago mayoral race with a large number of candidates (without an incumbent running) and arguably an insufficient number of demonstrated uses of black political strength, we are interested in Attorney Montgomery’s perspective on the political environment in Chicago and Cook County and recommendations for increasing and/or leveraging political power towards improving the quality of life for black people.
Please join us for a very timely, engaging and informative Breakfast and Book Signing.
