The Museum of Tolerance presented “COURAGE: The Vision to End Segregation. The Guts to Fight for It,” with Civil Rights leaders and citizen activists whose brave actions have changed America forever. Participants explored the award‐winning COURAGE exhibition about Reverend J. A. De Laine and his brave congregation of Claredon County, South Carolina, who filed a landmark lawsuit challenging racial segregation, then met De Laine family members in conversation with constitutional lawyer Stephen Rohde. The Beverly Hills Bar Association co‐sponsored this event.
