Black Lawyers Rock! Inaugural Events to Check Out this Weekend.


Black lawyers rock! No, it's not just because Ladybrille's Nana Danquaah Osafo and Uduak Oduok are Black/African lawyers, although that is a plus [you smile]. It is because two of the most powerful people ready to move into the White House and help take the country and world a different direction are BLACK LAWYERS! Yes, you guessed right! Michelle and Barack Obama.

This weekend, there are lots of inaugural events planned by African and Black organizations in the Washington DC area. Below are some of our picks worth checking out.
