"Civil rights leader and state legislator Lloyd Barbee often signed his letters with "Justice for All," a phrase that was emblematic of his work. Best known for his work litigating desegregation of Milwaukee Public Schools, he went on to serve in the state assembly, where he legislated on civil rights issues ranging from housing and employment discrimination to reparations for African Americans and indigenous people. He also introduced bills to legalize abortion, same-sex marriage, and marijuana, political issues that put him ahead of his time. This book gathers Barbee's writings on the subjects of his legislative efforts and world events, providing an important historical record of the civil rights movement and insight into issues that continue into today."--Provided by publisher.
