MIKE CODY’S WORK WITH DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING FEATURED ON THE HUFFINGTON POST
Burch, Porter & Johnson veteran attorney Mike Cody is featured in a blog post by former Arizona Attorney General Grant Woods on The Huffington Post today. The story, titled Martin Luther King’s Dream Will Not Die, details Cody’s involvement in the legal struggle Dr. Martin Luther King experienced surrounding a march for Memphis sanitation workers right before his death.
“Of course the young civil rights lawyer was moved when he heard the rest of the speech, which also moved the nation. When Dr. King spoke of looking over the mountain and seeing the promised land, Mike Cody wasn’t thinking of premonitions or the end of a dream. He was thinking that he was playing a very small part in a very big thing: he was part of a movement to make America the country it had always said it wanted to be.”
