One of 250 copies printed of this address by Judge Bruce McMarion Wright (1917-2005) to the Black Law Students Association at the University of Missouri Law School, Columbia, Missouri, on February 2, 1991.  Wright began his career as a jurist when he was named to the New York City Criminal Court bench by Mayor John Lindsay in 1970.  He was then elected to the New York State Supreme Court in 1979.  Throughout his career, Wright held onto his belief that the judicial system, including bail, was stacked against poor and minority defendants.

This is the fourth in a series of booklets.  Edition of 250 copies, printed in Goudy type on Mohawk Superfine paper at the Typocraft Printing Company, Detroit Michigan.  Signed by the author on the opening page.
