Robert Belton receives National Bar Association's 2006 Presidential Achievement Award

Robert Belton was presented with the National Bar Association's 2006 Presidential Achievement Award for outstanding achievement on April 28 at the Marion Sweatt Luncheon, held during the NBA's Annual Mid-Year Conference in Memphis.

Founded in 1925, the National Bar Association is the oldest and largest bar association of color. With 84 chapters worldwide, the NBA represents a professional network of more than 20,000 attorneys.

The Sweatt Luncheon is named in memory of Herman Marion Sweatt, an African-American who sued the State of Texas after being denied admission into its then racially segregated law school. Sweatt won his case in the Supreme Court.
