The George H. White Bar Association was organized in 1962. Although organized by and primarily comprised of African-American attorneys who reside or practice law in Durham County, this thriving, dynamic Association has extended its membership to encompass other ethnicities. Its members are dedicated to continuing the legacy and work of George Henry White
as a spokesman for all. Its purpose is to enrich Durham County and the legal community through service, scholarship opportunities for high school and law school students, mentor programs, and resources to the local bar.
The organization hosts an Annual Scholarship and Recognition Banquet, at which scholarships are presented to North Carolina Central University Law School students, including the recipient of the C.C. “Buddy” Malone Scholarship for Trial Advocacy. Additionally, the Association will honor two members of the George H. White Bar for being trailblazers and providing years of service to the Durham Community.
