David E. Lowe - Touched with Fire: Morris B. Abram and the Battle against Racial and Religious Discrimination

Upcoming Event
Sunday, January 5, 2020 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Lowe, a retired vice president for government relations and public affairs for the National Endowment for Democracy, here delivers an elegant biography of Morris B. Abram (1918-2000), saluting a tireless advocate of human rights who deserves to be better known, and illuminating issues—legislative apportionment, affirmative action, campus unrest, and the enforcement of international human rights—that have continually challenged the country. Raised in the rural south, Abram became a leading civil rights lawyer, and, after some 14 years of working to end discriminatory voting, at last successfully established the "one person, one vote" principle. He went on to lead the American Jewish Committee and to serve as permanent representative to the United Nations in Geneva.
