Judge to Speak at MLK Event in Jackson

Davidson County General Sessions Court Judge Angelita Dalton will be the featured speaker at Lane College’s annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. chapel convocation on Wednesday. A native of Nashville and an alumna of the Jackson college, Dalton was the first African American woman elected to a judgeship in Nashville. Lane College was founded in 1882 by individuals committed to making sure that newly freed slaves would be able to read and write. The event will take place at 11 a.m. in the J.F. Lane Health and Physical Education Building, the Jackson Sun reports.
