Marty Glick '64 Will Share his "Mississippi Burning" Experiences with Students and Alumni on October 22
Marty Glick '64 knew he wanted to litigate, so when classmate Niki Schwartz '64 suggested he interview with the Department of Justice, Marty agreed.
Just before graduating first in his class, Marty received a call from the legendary John Doar, inviting him to join the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division.
Assigned in Washington, DC, Marty spent three months every summer in the South, primarily Mississippi, litigating civil rights, voting rights and other federal cases. It was during this period Marty worked on U.S. v. Cecil Price et al involving the deaths of three civil rights workers chronicled in the movie Mississippi Burning.
Marty will return to campus at noon on Friday, October 22 to share his experiences from this period with students. All students and alumni are invited to attend the presentation in the Saxbe Auditorium at noon.
