February is #BlackHistoryMonth, a time to acknowledge and celebrate the contributions and achievements of African Americans, despite the history of racism and oppression in our country, and the ongoing and urgent battle against it. The Dolan Firm is honored to spotlight and support the Charles Houston Bar Association (“CHBA”).
About Charles Houston Bar Association:
The CHBA was founded in 1955 and named in honor of the legendary civil rights attorney, Charles Hamilton Houston. Commonly referred to as “The Man That Killed Jim Crow”, Houston was the first black student to be elected to the editorial board of the Harvard Law review in 1919. Houston became the first general counsel for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and formulated the foundational legal arguments challenging the “separate but equal” doctrine nearly two decades before Brown v. Board of Education was decided before the Supreme Court.
In December 2022, the Dolan Law Firm was excited to attend CHBA’s 67th Annual Gala and Awards Ceremony, where our firm was honored with a Millennium Sponsor Award. Part of the Dolan Law Firm’s sponsorship funds went directly to a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion scholarship recipient. The Dolan Law Firm is excited to play an ongoing role in helping advance the mission of CHBA. We encourage everyone in our legal community to explore the possibility of supporting this incredible organization and highlighting its many accomplishments.
