Remembering Judge McMillian at 100

On January 28, 2019, Judge Theodore McMillian, the first African American appointed to the federal bench in the United States Eighth Circuit, would have been 100 years old. In celebration of his 100th birthday, the U.S. Courts Library has redesigned an exhibit honoring his life and legacy.

Remembering Judge McMillian at 100 debuted at the U.S. Courts Library in St. Louis during February's Black History Month and will be on exhibit in the Cedar Rapids federal courthouse from March through May 2019.
