Atty. Dorothy Sampson | Road Trip


Dorothy Sampson became the first African American female attorney in Sumter. Her area of interest was civil rights litigation, voter education and registration. She was a plaintiff in a suit against the South Carolina court system for full and equal employment for Blacks. She won the case on its "merits" which means both parties agreed the suit was valid and accepted the requested terms.
