Retired Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Alan Page will visit Marine September 19 for a conversation about his life and work.

In 1992, he became the first African American to serve on the Minnesota Supreme Court. Justice Page and his wife, Diane, founded the Page Education Foundation, which assists Minnesota students of color in their pursuit of post-secondary education.
He and his daughter, Kamie Page, have written three children’s picture books.
In November 2018, Justice Page was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
The event is set for 7 p.m. Thursday, September 19, at the Marine Village Hall (121 Judd Street, Marine on St. Croix). Doors open 6:30 p.m. The event is free but seating is limited. Light refreshments will be served.
