George R. Greene, the first African American judge elected in Wake County, NC, passed away on Sunday, March 17, 2013. A native of Nashville, NC, Greene graduated from Shaw University (the oldest HBCU) in Raleigh, NC and UNC Chapel Hill's School of Law. During the civil rights movement, he represented Shaw & St. Aug students for free when they held sit-ins to protest segregation in local business.
