The Nashville Bar Foundation is joining the effort to build a monument in honor of Adolpho Birch, the first African American to serve as Chief Justice of the Tennessee Supreme Court. WKRN reports the total cost of the monument, along with a citywide celebration in honor of the 10th anniversary of the Justice A. A. Birch Building, is estimated at $150,000. A fundraising dinner is planned for Aug. 27 and sponsorships are available. The NBA is also accepting donations for the project. For more information, contact Judge Rachel Bell, 615-862-8341.
