Black Police Precinct Mentoring Event

On April 17, 2019, the Kozyak Minority Mentoring Foundation and the law firm of Hunton Andrews Kurth co-hosted a reception at the Historic Black Police Precinct Courthouse and Museum. The reception was to announce the law firm’s underwriting of a bust honoring the late Honorable John D. Johnson, the second black judge to serve in this courthouse. Juan Enjamio, the managing partner of Hunton Andrews Kurth has agreed to serve on the KMMF Board.

One of the highlights of the evening was when the late Garth Reeves, Sr., who was 100 years old at the time, captured the audience with his description of preparing litigation with Thurgood Marshall and John D. Johnson to desegregate public golf courses. Their lawsuit was successful after a court case that lasted many years. In 1959 the Miami Springs golf course was desegregated. Mr. Reeves made a point of greeting every law student who attended the reception.

Board member, H.T. Smith provided a moving and inspirational tribute to Judge D. Johnson and this historic building. (Read H.T.'s tribute here.) Juan Enjamio explained that his firm decided to honor Judge D. Johnson, raise funds for KMMF summer fellowships, and to celebrate the firm’s 20th anniversary of its Miami office. It was decided by the firm that the funds that might have been used to host a party would be better spent doing something of significance for the community.
