Fred Gray, JD (LAW '54, HON '92), our 2016 Distinguished Alumni Award recipient and one of the nation's most celebrated civil rights lawyers, will return to CWRU's campus this May to deliver the spring commencement address. Gray was on the front lines of the 1960s Civil Rights Movement, representing Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr. and victims of the Tuskegee Syphilis Study, among other historic, high-profile clients.
