Michael Lozoff, a partner in the Miami office, remembers the day he felt a strong sense of injustice while in college. He had invited his black friend to eat lunch when his friend declined because they wouldn’t serve him or any person of color at the campus cafe. That event led Michael to spend much of his youth organizing communities and working in the civil rights movement.
Michael recounted this and other stories from his experience with the civil rights movement at a Martin Luther King, Jr. remembrance event hosted last Friday at the firm’s Miami office. Miami Partner in Charge Frank Rodriguez said in his opening remarks that “this room would have looked very different in April of 1968. There’s a lot of diversity in this room and that’s in part attributed to Dr. King’s legacy.”
