Law Library spotlights Louisville's role in civil rights trial

Thu, 01/08/2015 - 15:39
p class=p1img src=/sites/www.law.louisville.edu/files/lib-exp.png / /pp class=p1nbsp;/pp class=p1In October, the Brandeis School of Law’s Allen Court Room hosted a reenactment of the sensationalized Carl Braden trial of 1954, in which Braden was sentenced to 15 years in prison for sedition after he and his wife Anne purchased a home for an African American family in the Louisville area that is now Shively. The reenactment was part of a series of events to mark the 60supth/sup anniversary of the Wade/Braden story, which quickly became a formative event for Louisville and the nation as citizens grappled with a fledgling Civil Rights movement. /p p class=p1To commemorate the trial – and the events leading up to it – UL’s Law Library is featuring the exhibit, “Black Freedom, White Allies amp; Red Scare: Louisville, 1954.” The closing date is set for Jan. 30. /p p class=p1Also on that day, Professors Laura Rothstein and Jamie Abrams will host their classes in the library where Cate Fosl, director of the UofL Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research, will provide an overview of the exhibit and historical context about the Braden/Wade story. Fosl is also Anne Braden’s biographer and her book, “Subversive Southerner” was a co-winner of the Oral History Association’s Book Award in 2003./p p class=p1bSedition charges/b/p p class=p1The historical context essentially begins in March of 1954 when Andrew and Charlotte Wade ask whites Carl and Anne Braden to help purchase a home after realtors repeatedly refused to sell to the African American family. The Bradens closed on a home in what is now Shively in May and hand the keys over to the Wades who were the only African Americans in the neighborhood. /p p class=p1Shortly after their move-in date, the Wade house was bombed and crosses were burned on the lawn. /p p class=p1Carl and Anne Braden were subsequently accused of staging the purchase and bombing as part of a communist plot to take over the state government./p p class=p1The case went to trial and Carl Braden was charged with sedition. At the time, working for racial integration was interpreted by many Southern whites to be an embrace of communism.  Braden was sentenced to 15 years and served eight months./pp class=p1Unable to live in the damaged house and still facing harassment, the Wades, who had a toddler and a newborn at the time, moved out of their house.  /pp class=p1Following the trial, the Bradens continued to fight for social justice, supporting civil rights, desegregation and labor issues, among other efforts. They were both arrested numerous times while protesting and landed on the FBI investigation list because of their alleged ties to the Communist party. /p p class=p1Carl Braden died in 1975. Prior to her death in 2006, Anne Braden was the University of Louisville’s first visiting scholar in Race and Gender Studies. /p p class=p1bThe exhibit and its significance/b/p p class=p1The exhibit itself features photos and archival materials from the home purchase, the trial Carl Braden’s imprisonment, the years following the case and the events of the era that strongly influenced the case. The exhibit is the result of a collaboration between the Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research, the University of Louisville Archives amp; Special Collections, Louisville Free Public Library and Courier-Journal Media./p p class=p1Robin Harris, public services librarian and professor of legal bibliography, said the exhibit is a good example of UL’s commitment to diversity. /p p class=p1“Well before the topic of diversity became mainstream, the university was working on it and the law school in particular has been a leader in diversity efforts for more than 20 years. All of the deans have been committed,” Harris said. “This exhibit is not only a good example of that, but also a good example of its commitment to interdisciplinary studies.” /p p class=p1The interdisciplinary angle comes from Fosl, who is a faculty member in the women’s and gender studies program within the College of Arts and Science. /p p class=p1Harris adds that, from a historical perspective, the exhibit also provides a powerful narrative about a “seminal event” in Louisville and US history. /p p class=p1“It’s been 60 years since this happened and it’s really important for people of all ages to know about this trial, from the purchase to the bombing to the trial, particularly from a law perspective,” Harris said. “We’re fortunate to have it here on display. It’s a fitting tribute to the role that Louisville had in the Civil Rights movement.” /p p class=p1More information about the story is available on NPR’s “Here and Now,” a href=http://hereandnow.wbur.org/2014/12/01/louisville-civil-rightsavailable online./a/p p class=p1The exhibit will next appear at the White Privilege Conference, March 11-15 at Louisville’s Galt House. /p
