Remembering Wisconsin Civil Rights Leader John Doar

yt 9458 Remembering Wisconsin Civil Rights Leader John Doar - Remembering Wisconsin Civil Rights Leader John Doar

The life and legacy of John Doar, Wisconsin’s most renowned civil rights lawyer, is being celebrated this week in his home town of New Richmond, Wis. As part of the celebration, the State Bar of Wisconsin reflects on the significance of Atty. Doar, from retired Milwaukee County Circuit Court Commissioner Lindsey D. Draper.

The New York Times described John Doar as “a country lawyer from northern Wisconsin who led the federal government’s on-the-ground efforts to dismantle segregation in the South.”

President Barack Obama presented the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Doar in 2012. “There could be no more privileged assignment than to work for the country in dealing with the very difficult and long-standing problem of race,” Doar said on receiving the medal.
