    “Our Job Isn’t Over” – What Would Dr. King think of Memphis now?  

    As HR professionals, are we being conscious of the following:

    • There are laws in place; however, is there respect and conversation taking place to move us forward?
    • Recognizing history and valuing the impact that each of us can make in our daily interaction with employees, co-workers, boards that we participate in, etc.
    • If the fear isn’t race, is it shifting to class and economics

    Join us as we explore how HR professionals can make change happen in an ever changing world!

    Special guest Michael Cody

    April 4, 1968 was a landmark day for W.J. Michael Cody. The previous afternoon, the Memphis attorney, then in his early 30s, had met with his pro bono client, Martin Luther King Jr., at the Lorraine Motel. “I was like most people that met Dr. King,” Cody says. “I was mesmerized by the force of his commitment and persuasiveness.”

    He’d seen King’s unforgettable “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” speech at Mason Temple that evening. And, on the 4th, after Cody and his colleagues at Burch, Porter & Johnson persuaded a federal court judge to lift the city’s injunction against King’s next march on behalf of the striking sanitation workers, he could finally catch a breather.

    After serving on the Memphis City Council from 1975 to 1977, Cody was appointed by President Jimmy Carter to a four-year term as U.S. attorney for the Western District of Tennessee. On his first day, while moving into his office, Cody’s predecessor quipped, “This job has more power than a good man ought to want or a bad man ought to have.”
