Ben Crump says black people in America have overcome the most dire of circumstances, and he has no doubt the community will continue to move forward in the future…no matter how worrisome things seem today.
The top civil attorney joined “TMZ Live” on Thursday to talk about the overall state of civil rights and equality in America … ahead of the release of the new Netflix documentary, “Civilian: Ben Crump.”
Ben tells us he has no doubt that black people will win the war on inequality. He says, no matter how we feel today, “we are much better than yesterday, and we will be better tomorrow”.
As you know, Ben has been involved in some of the most high-profile civil rights cases in the country, including George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Andre Hill — and it continues to shine a light on police brutality … now the leading cause of death for black men.
The documentary – which drops Sunday, June 16 – follows Ben through 2020 as the nation faced judgment on race and equality in the wake of The Murder of George Floyd.
Ben says he is grateful to those who paved the way for him and hopes to inspire the next generation of lawyers and civil rights activists. He told us about the 2 legal icons that inspired his own career and life philosophy.
