Civil Rights

Seeking Justice / Living Faith – A Dialogue Between Fred D. Gray and Mark Lanier – Two Christian Lawyers Who Changed the Nation

When: June 8, 2023, 3:30 pm - Thursday

Where: Stone Chapel

Session 5

Session Abstract

At first blush one might not think that a civil rights lawyer from Alabama and a personal injury lawyer from Texas have much in common. Indeed, their personal stories are as dramatically different as their professional practices. But, they share unrelenting quests for justice and lives of vital Christian faith. Theirs will be a compelling and even historic conversation.


L. Randolph Lowry III, Lipscomb University, Emeritus, Convener

  • Fred D. Gray, Attorney at Law, Civil Rights, Participant
  • Mark Lanier, Civil Trial Attorney and Founder, Lanier Theological Library, Houston, Texas, Participant
