            JIM CROW AND ME: STORIES FROM MY LIFE AS
    A CIVIL RIGHTS LAWYER BY ATTORNEY SOLOMON S. SEAY, JR.
     AT THE ALABAMA DEPARTMENT OF ARCHIVES AND HISTORY
Join us at noon on Thursday, January 22, as attorney Solomon S. Seay, Jr. shares highlights

Pioneer civil rights attorney Solomon Seay, Jr. recounts his life and role in the movement in this
compelling new work. Seay’s memoir, written with co-author Delores R. Boyd, chronicles both
heartening and heartbreaking episodes of his first-hand struggle to achieve the actualization of
civil rights. Both Seay and Boyd will comment on the production of this work and will be
available afterward for a book signing. Books will be available for purchase by the publisher,
NewSouth Books.

Solomon S. Seay, Jr. is an Alabama native and civil rights lawyer who received his degrees from
Livingston College and Howard University School of Law. Delores R. Boyd practiced law for
twenty – five years in her hometown of Montgomery, Alabama, before serving as municipal
court judge and United States Magistrate Judge.

This ‘Bonus’ ArchiTreats presentation is in addition to the regular series of third-Thursday free
lectures presented by the Alabama Department of Archives and History. The public is invited to
bring a sack lunch and enjoy a bit of Alabama history. Coffee and tea will be provided by the
Friends of the Alabama Archives. For more information, call (334) 353-4712.
