March on Milwaukee: Assisted Search - Lloyd Barbee

Lloyd A. Barbee was an attorney, a state legislator, and one of the most prominent leaders of Wisconsin's civil rights movement. He was born in Memphis, Tennessee, on August 17, 1925, and he joined the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) when he was just 12 years old. Barbee served in the navy during WWII. In 1949 he graduated from the all-black LeMoyne College with a B.A. in economics. Later that year, Barbee moved to Madison to attend the University of Wisconsin Law School, but dropped out after his first year because of the racism he encountered among his peers and professors. He eventually returned to the university, however, and received his law degree in 1956.  more...
