Laverne Jones-Gore honors Judge Sara Harper

Judge Sara Harper was honored in a ceremony by the Republican National Committee and others in the Outhwaite Community Center which is in the public housing where she (and Carl and Lou Stokes and others) grew up.  That is also where the Judge Sara Harper library is housed for residents of Outhwaite Public Housing.

Judge Hamper was a pioneer including being the first the first black woman to graduate from Case Western Reserve University Law School. The event marked the end of the 2016 Black History Month and included a tour of the Sara J. Harper Children’s Library, a reception for area Republicans and the Outhwaite community and an awards ceremony for the evening’s honoree Judge Harper.

Laverne Jones-Gore told how Judge Harper was her hero and inspiration.
