Statement from Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter on the Passing of Vernon Jordan


"Rosalynn and I are saddened by the passing of our friend Vernon Jordan. In the courtroom alongside Donald Lee Hollowell, Vernon helped push our home state into the modern era by forcing the University of Georgia to integrate, and that was just the beginning of his legacy of contributions to American social progress. We offer our condolences to his wife, daughter, and his many admirers."
