From the Richmond Free Press:
"The elevation of Judge Alston would not only add to African-American influence on the Supreme Court, but also would make history."
"The National Bar Association, which is comprised primarily of African-American lawyers and judges, could find no record of any other state having so many African-American justices on the highest court at one time, even during the Reconstruction period after the Civil War."
"Now on the state intermediate Court of Appeals, Judge Alston would join two other African-American justices, S. Bernard Goodwyn and Cleo Powell, on the seven-member Supreme Court once the General Assembly elects him."
