James E. Williams Jr. became a public defender because of a firm and longstanding belief in freedom, equality and fairness. A lack of adequate vigorous representation for the indigent accused, most of whom are black or other people of color endangers all the gains Black people have fought for all these years. Join us as James shares his fight against that system of unfairness and oppression by three decades of work as a public defender. Speaker: James E. Williams Jr., retired Public Defender, Orange and Chatham counties
