Yesterday’s Detroit Free Press featured a fascinating interview with my good friend Judge Damon Keith. Reporter Cassandra Spratling covers a lot of interesting ground (in print and video formats) discussed in Judge Keith’s recently published biography, Crusader for Justice. Last month I had the pleasure of hosting a book-launch luncheon at the Detroit Athletic Club that brought together many of Damon’s friends. We celebrated the publication of what I believe should be a must-read for anyone interested in our nation’s historic drive toward civil rights and equal opportunity. Asked by Cassandra Spratling what he hopes people will learn about him in the book, Judge Keith answers: “He did the best he could with his God-given talent and he used his life and the law to try to make things better for all Americans.” If you are looking for a great holiday gift, consider giving someone you love a copy of Crusader for Justice. Judge Keith’s life story is a powerful example of how one person, regardless of the obstacles he or she must overcome, can make a positive difference in the lives of millions of Americans.
