The 14th John S. Rock Memorial Lecture @ The Friends Village, Fenwick Auditorium
Oct 15 @ 3:30 pm

John Zen Jackson, Esq. Announced as the Presenter for the 14th John Stewart Rock Memorial Lecture

Date & Time: October 15, 2017 at 3:30 pm

Location: The Friends Village, Fenwick Auditorium, 1 Friends Dr, Woodstown, NJ 08098

Info: (856) 935-5004, www.salemcountyhistoricalsociety.com

The Salem County Historical Society has announced that John Zen Jackson, Esq. will be the presenter of “Slave-catchers, the Fugitive Slave Laws, and New Jersey’s Chief Justice Hornblower” for the 14th John S. Rock Memorial Lecture to be held on Sunday, October 15, 2017, at the Friends Village, Fenwick Auditorium, 1 Friends Dr., Woodstown, NJ 08098 at 3:30 P.M. The public is invited to enjoy this free educational program.

John Zen Jackson is a partner in the law firm of McElroy, Deutsch, Mulvaney & Carpenter, LLP in its Morristown, New Jersey office and a member of the firm’s Health Care Practice Group.  He is certified as a civil trial attorney by the New Jersey Supreme Court and is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers.  A graduate of Tufts University and Seton Hall University School of Law, Mr. Jackson was licensed as an attorney in New Jersey in 1975.  Before entering private practice, for one year he served as law secretary to Richard J. Hughes, Chief Justice of the New Jersey Supreme Court. He is a member of the Medical History Society of New Jersey and the Supreme Court Historical Society.

As part of the Society’s educational programming, this lecture commemorates the life of abolitionist John Stewart Rock (1826–1866), teacher, healer, and counselor. Rock, born in Salem County, was a black abolitionist of national prominence, who was well known in his time but less recognized in ours. He was the first African American to be admitted to the Bar of the United States Supreme Court on February 1, 1865.

The Society continues to honor the life of this native son through this lecture series and through a special John Stewart Rock Memorial Scholarship at the Salem Community College. Contributions from the community at large fund both commemorations through a restricted fund at the Salem County Historical Society.
