In 1969, Johnnie Cochran was appointed to represent a group of Black Panthers. It was here that Johnnie Cochran started his life-long friendship with Elmer “Geronimo” Pratt. Two years later, only 9 Panthers, including Stafford and Pratt, were found guilty of the minor charge of conspiracy to possess contraband weapons. But Geronimo’s problems were just getting started and he asked Mr. Cochran to represent him as he faced murder, robbery and assault with a deadly weapon charges related to another incident.
This is part one of a three part series on Johnnie Cochran’s friendship and working relationship with Geronimo Pratt. Keep an eye out for part two! In the meantime, you can read more about Johnnie’s life at bit.ly/3l1bHaR.

Johnnie stayed the course despite numerous setbacks. He was determined AND relentless. Inevitably, he got the victory he set out to achieve in vindicating G Pratt. What an awesome lawyer and advocate he was. 🙏👋👑

On July 28, 1868, the 14th Amendment was ratified. Also known as the “Reconstruction Amendment,” the legislation said:
“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”
This meant that former slaves who had been freed after the Civil War were now legal citizens of the U.S. The 14th Amendment has also been used as a basis for many major Supreme Court decisions, such as Roe v. Wade and Brown v. Board of Education. To learn about landmark Supreme Court Civil Rights decisions, visit bit.ly/3tPQKk8.
