A Judicial Affair Honoring Our Past and Present Black Judiciary was hosted by F. Malcolm Cunningham and Palm Beach County Bar Association on Feb. 18. The event gave the two voluntary bars a chance to remember past Black judges including Jerome Davis; I.C. Smith; Edward Rodgers; Maurice Hall; Matthew Stevenson; Sheree Cunningham; Catherine Brunson; Carole Taylor; and Moses Baker, Jr.

Current black judges were also honored: Maxine Cheesman, Reginald Corlew, Bradley Harper, Debra Stephens, Renatha Francis and Cymonie Rowe.
