Former TBA President and Alamo lawyer Jim Emison has launched Tennesseans for Historical Justice, a new organization dedicated to revealing historical truth regarding civil rights crimes in Tennessee and striving for restorative justice and healing. Emison was instrumental in bringing attention to the unsolved 1940 murder of civil rights activist Elbert Williams in Brownsville in his book “Elbert Williams: First to Die.” The group has applied for nonprofit status and is awaiting final approval. There are opportunities to volunteer with the group and support it financially.
