Civil rights attorney Richard Rouco, activist LaQuenna Lewis & Mayor Patrick Braxton
Patrick Braxton accomplished something no other black resident of the city of Newbern had ever accomplished since the city's founding in 1854; he was duly elected mayor of the city.
However, the minority white residents of the city, long accustomed to exercising total control over city government refused to accept this outcome.
Mayor Braxton and his council have filed a lawsuit against the defendants to put an end to a continued conspiracy to deprive the black residents meaningful representation.
