City of Birmingham to honor Nina Miglionico

Feb 27, 2015 1957

Nina Miglionico (1913–2009) was an early activist for women's rights and to date is the longest-practicing female attorney in Alabama, practicing law for 73 years. She was also a Birmingham, Jefferson County, political leader who stood for racial equality and consistently voted to repeal the city segregation ordinances that led to the civil rights campaign of 1963.

In her honor, a life size statue of Ms Miglionico will be commisioned. The finished statue will be displayed in Linn Park, Birmingham, Alabama.
