Cleveland City Council Unanimously Urges Cleveland State To Remove John Marshall From Law School's Name
Following up on my previous post, Pressure Builds To Remove John Marshall From Cleveland State Law School's Name: Cleveland.com, Cleveland City Council Urges CSU Law School to Remove Name of John Marshall:
Cleveland City Council Monday unanimously passed a resolution urging Cleveland State University to remove the name of slaveholder U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Marshall from the name of CSU’s Cleveland-Marshall College of Law.
Keeping the name atop a college at Cleveland’s public university amounts to a “black eye,” said Councilman Kevin Conwell, who championed the resolution. He likened keeping the name to flying a Confederate flag.
