The Wolverine Bar Association’s major fundraising event, the Barristers’ Ball, has returned after a two-year pandemic-related hiatus. Before this year’s Barristers’ Ball, titled “The Come Back,” host Stephen Henderson talks with Wolverine Bar President Kim Ward and retired judge Craig Strong, a recipient of the association’s Golden Gavel Award, about the importance of the association to the African American legal community in Michigan and how it supports aspiring lawyers and judge.  

The Wolverine Bar Association, located in Detroit, began in 1930 to promote racial equality in legal matters for Detroit’s Black community. Today, the bar association provides a number of resources, programs and scholarships for young African Americans interested in pursuing a career in law.
