Fred Gray On Thursday, August 27, 2015, Florida State College of Law hosted a special lecture and reception with veteran civil rights attorney and author Fred Gray, Esq. Gray's legal career began in the midst of America's civil rights movement. Less than a year out of law school, and at age 24, he represented civil rights icon Rosa Parks and was also Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s first civil rights lawyer. That was the beginning of a legal career that now spans more than 60 years. He chronicles much of his life and work in his autobiography, Bus Ride to Justice: Changing the System by the System, the Life and Works of Fred Gray (2013).
