Norman S. Minor Bar Association 2018 Trailblazer Luncheon
Jones Day was the signature sponsor of the Norman S. Minor Bar Association Trailblazer Award Luncheon on October 26, 2018 in Cleveland, Ohio. This year’s honorees included the Honorable Jessica E. Price Smith, Jillian Elizabeth Charles, Marquettes Robinson and Jacqueline A. Johnson.
The Norman S. Minor Bar Association (NSMBA) was founded in 1980 as the first full-fledged African American bar association. It is named in honor of one of Cleveland’s foremost trial attorneys – Norman Selby Minor – who practiced law from 1927 to the mid-1960s.
Jones Day partner, Yvette McGee Brown, is a past winner of the Trailblazer Award.
