St. Thomas University in Miami is naming its law school after famed civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump.


Crump has gained notoriety by representing the families of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Trayvon Martin, and most recently Tyre Nichols. 

According to the Miami Herald, Crump is the first practicing attorney to have a school named in
his honor.


David Armstrong,  St. Thomas University’s president, said renaming the school “pays
homage to the attorney’s work and in an effort to “encourage bridge-building among the legal profession, law enforcement, and our communities.”

What a way to continue to celebrate Black History Month, congratulations to attorney Crump for continuing to fight the good fight.
