Details

Attorney Johnnie L. Cochran Jr. set a new standard for civil rights advocacy in the courtroom. Through determined effort, he won seemingly impossible legal cases—O.J. Simpson, Willie Stafford, Todd Bridges, James Mincey Jr.—and negotiated for a freer, safer existence for African Americans. A compassionate man with roots in Louisiana slavery and sharecropping and an education from some of the best schools in Los Angeles, Cochran furthered the work of Thurgood Marshall, W.E.B. DuBois, and Martin Luther King Jr. He held big-city police accountable for their actions; helped ban the fatal police chokehold in Los Angeles; stood up to corporate disregard; and established one of the nation's largest legal firms. This biography spotlights the life and legacy of the man who believed "an injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."
