Abstract:

Politician Louis Stokes was born on February 23, 1925 in Cleveland, Ohio. Serving in the Army after high school until 1946, he attended Case-Western Reserve University, earning his J.D. degree from Cleveland Marshall Law School in 1953. During his fourteen year law career, Stokes participated in three cases before the United States Supreme Court including the landmark “stop and frisk” case of Terry v. Ohio. His brother, Carl Stokes, in 1968, was elected mayor of Cleveland, Ohio, the first African American mayor of a large American city. Stokes was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1968, making him the first African American member of Congress from Ohio. During his thirty-year tenure, he served on committees including Appropriations, Intelligence and Ethic, earning the reputation as a stable, trustworthy and competent adjudicator. Co-founder of the Congressional Black Caucus, Stokes retired from Congress in 1999. Stokes passed away in 2015 at the age of 90.
