Lolis Elie, Lawyer Who Helped Desegregate New Orleans, Dies at 87 - New York Times

Saturday, April 08, 2017

His marriage to the former Gerri Moore, a school principal and university professor, ended in divorce. In addition to their son, who was a columnist for The Times-Picayune of New Orleans and story editor for the HBO drama “Treme,” he is survived by their daughter, Dr. Migel Elizabeth Elie; three grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.With his two black law partners, Nils R. Douglas and Robert F. Collins, Mr. Elie represented the Consumers’ League of Greater New Orleans in its 1960 boycott of white store owners on a strip of what is now Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard.After enlisting a criminal defense lawyer, John P. Nelson Jr., who was white, the legal team successfully argued for charges to be dropped against members of the Congress of Racial Equality — Oretha Castle was one — who had engaged in lunch-counter protests in a case that was ultimately decided by the United States Supreme Court. (Mr. Nelson carried the appeal to the Supreme Court.)Mr. Elie helped negotiate desegregation agreements with merchants and successfully defended Ernest N. Morial, known as Dutch, against a challenge to his residency when he sought to become the first black member of the State House of Representatives.But Mr. Elie also became frustrated with the pace of equal opportunity, at one time embracing black nationalism and Malcolm X.Mr. Elie, who retired shortly after Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005, was reflective about what more than four decades of advocacy for civil rights had accomplished.“I think what it effectively did was create a middle class,” he told WWL-TV in 1997. “For example, in 1959 when I finished law school, there were about 10 African-American lawyers in the city of New Orleans and probably 30 in the state. There are hundreds now, hundreds of doctors.“On the other hand, you have more people in prison now than ever. You have more African-American males in prison than you have in college, so it’s better for some, much worse for others.”...
