Potter Anderson Sponsors 2019 Redding Benefit and Awards Gala
November 1, 2019
Potter Anderson is proud to support the Louis L. Redding Benefit and Awards Gala hosted by the Delaware Barristers Association on November 1 in Wilmington. We have been a gold-level sponsor of this annual celebration since its inception.
The gala honors the legacy of Louis Redding, a prominent civil rights advocate and the first African-American attorney to be admitted to the Delaware bar. Redding was also an instrumental part of the legal team that successfully challenged school segregation before the U.S. Supreme Court in Brown v. Board of Education.
This year’s honorees were:
- Tony Allen, Ph.D. — Executive Vice President & Provost, Delaware State University
- The Honorable Margaret Rose Henry — District 2 Senator & Senate Majority Leader, Delaware State Senate (Retired)
