Nassau County Bar Association’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee performed a dramatic re-enactment of the landmark civil rights case Meredith v. Fair at NCBA in Mineola on May 2. The production was followed by a complimentary Diversity Reception.
Husband-and-wife team Judge Denny Chin of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and Kathy Hirata Chin, senior counsel at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft, wrote the re-enactment. The script was based on actual court records, depositions, news reports and memoirs, and the production was accompanied by a slideshow of archival photos.
NCBA’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee was formed earlier this year to identify and discuss the value of diversity, as well as develop a more inclusive leadership at NCBA.
