Support the center
The family of Judge Damon J. Keith has requested that gifts in his memory be made to the Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights at Wayne State University Law School to empower the next generation of civil rights leaders. Wayne State will notify the family of your thoughtful contribution.
Statement from Judge Keith's family
Our father had a deeply personal relationship with Wayne State University. As his alma mater and hometown university, he was close to multiple Presidents and Law School Deans. Dr. Rachel Boone Keith, his wife, our mother, taught at Wayne's Medical School. Our family is so proud that both the Damon J. Keith Law Collection of African American Legal History and the Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights are housed at Wayne State.
The power of legacy planning and his commitment to Wayne is demonstrated through our father's generosity in his estate plan. We hope that others will follow his example and make charitable gifts to institutions they care about through their bequests.
- The Estate of Damon J. Keith, Cecile Keith Brown, Debbie E. Keith, Gilda B. Keith
