Oscar Williams Adams: First African American Alabama Supreme Court Justice

0 Posted by - September 8, 2019 - Black First, Black History, LATEST POSTS

Oscar William Adams was a pioneer in the judicial system. He became the first African American to join the Birmingham Bar Association.
Adams was born in Birmingham, Alabama, on February 7, 1925. Adams was the son of a Birmingham newspaper publisher and the grandson of a member of the Alabama legislature.

In 1944, Adams received his bachelor’s degree from Talladega College and later earned a law degree from the Howard University School of Law in 1947. He made state history as the first African-American Alabama Supreme Court justice and the first African American elected to statewide office in Alabama.

Adams first partnered with white attorney Harvey Burg, forming the state’s first integrated legal practice. He later founded his own law firm with James Baker and U. W. Clemon (Adams, Baker and Clemon) one of the foremost law firms to litigate civil rights cases in the 1960s.

In 1980, Adams’ career was advanced further with his appointment to the Alabama Supreme Court. Appointed by Governor Fob James, he again made history, becoming the first African American to serve on any appellate court in the state of Alabama and later the first to be elected to any statewide constitutional office in Alabama’s history.

Adams died on February 15, 1997. He was honored posthumously by being inducted into the Alabama Lawyers Hall of Fame in 2005.

    Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no backup.
    Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

    An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment. I
    believe that you need to publish more on this issue, it may not be a
    taboo subject but typically people don’t talk about these topics.
    To the next! Cheers!!

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism
    or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over
    the internet without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help prevent content from being ripped off?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.
