In 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr. and fellow protesters wanted to march for civil rights in Birmingham, Alabama, on Good Friday and Easter. They applied for a parade permit but were refused on the grounds that the city only extended the permits to petitioners, and not to other parties. Knowing that they were not going to receive a permit, but believing that their rights were being violated under the Constitution, they continued to organize the marches and were charged and sentenced with contempt. The Alabama Supreme Court affirmed the ruling. In this talk, Randall Kennedy describes and assesses the United States Supreme Court's upholding of Martin Luther King Jr.'s conviction for contempt of court for disobeying a local court order in Birmingham, Alabama, Easter 1963. Kennedy teaches courses on contracts, criminal law, and the regulation of race relations at Harvard Law School. He served as a law clerk for Judge J. Skelly Wright of the United States Court of Appeals and for Justice Thurgood Marshall of the United States Supreme Court. He is a member of the bar of the District of Columbia and the Supreme Court of the United States. Awarded the 1998 Robert F. Kennedy Book Award for Race, Crime, and the Law, Kennedy writes for a wide range of scholarly and general interest publications. His most recent books are For Discrimination: Race, Affirmative Action, and the Law (2013), The Persistence of the Color Line: Racial Politics and the Obama Presidency (2011), and Sellout: The Politics of Racial Betrayal (2008), among others.
