DFT Mourns the Passing of Federal Judge Damon Keith

We are saddened to learn of the passing of Damon Keith, the legendary federal court judge. A 1939 graduate of Detroit Northwestern High School, he was a champion for public education and in 1971 ruled that Pontiac schools should be racially integrated. A Detroit elementary school was named in his honor in 1974. We lift up a prayer for his family in their hour of need.
