Quotes

According to the program, "Vernon's life story is the embodiment of the American dream from the public projects of Atlanta to the corridors of power in both the political and business arenas, he has seen and done it all. But, perhaps what is most inspirational about Vernon is that he has used his power with a single-minded purpose -- to make our society more just and our country more equal. He attended DePauw University in Greencastle, graduating as the only African American in his class. From there, he went on to attend Howard University Law School before going to work for the NAACP, the Voter Education Project and the United Negro College Fund. The National Urban League would experience tremendous growth under Jordan."
...fortunate in our community to have a group of historical figures that stood up for something that was right," said Starkville Mayor Parker Wiseman. "I hope we are all emboldened with the courage to do our part and make this world a better place."
"People are dying and billions are being spent," Krom said. "If equipping and training the Iraqi army isn't the answer, is equipping and training Syrian rebels the answer? Even if we defeat ISIS, will terrorism go away?"
"John was a litigator and a legal strategist par excellence," McDougall said. "He dedicated his skills throughout his life to the pursuit of justice and equality in the United States. And that's why I'm so glad that the Legal Defense Fund is establishing this fellowship in his name, that will allow future lawyers to follow in his footsteps."
