Subseries 3. Legal Cases, 1964-1997

Scope and Content Notes:

This subseries documents the legal cases Rabinowitz was involved in and include legal documents, briefs, and newspaper clippings. Materials are organized in chronological order. Of interest are the The Gegner v. McKee and Rabinowitz v. The United States cases. Joni Rabinowitz v. The United States, or "Joni's Case" as it was known, involved she and five other members of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) who were indicted for perjury in 1963 when she testified that she was not present at a protest meeting in front of an Albany, Ga., grocery store. Her father, Victor Rabinowitz, defended her and won an appeal the next year. The Gegner v. McKee involved Rabinowitz and over one hundred Antioch College students and other civil rights activists who were arrested in 1964 after protesting against Lewis Gegner, a Yellow Springs barber who refused to serve African American patrons.
