Tennessee Human Rights Commission Honors Local Advocates

The Tennessee Human Rights Commission, the state’s civil rights enforcement agency, celebrated its 50th anniversary last night by honoring 10 local human and civil rights advocates. Attendees at the sold-out event viewed a replica of the Emancipation Proclamation and the original 13th Amendment on display at the Tennessee State Museum. Honorees included attorneys Waverly Crenshaw, George Barrett and Rosetta Miller-Perry, as well as State Sen. Thelma Harper, D-Nashville. The Tennessean has the story.
