Florida Probate & Trust Litigation Blog: Bending the Arc of History by Terrence Franklin (July 14, 2022)


Juan C. Antúnez, in his Florida Probate & Trust Litigation Blog, discusses Terrence Franklin’s Ted Talk on unravelling his family history. The article begins as follows:

The work we do as trusts and estates attorneys can alter the course of our clients’ lives. But it’s tempting to think of what we do as not being particularly important in the grand scheme of things. That’s a mistake, says Terrence Franklin, a trusts and estates litigator in LA.

A few years ago Terry made a life-altering discovery about his family’s history in antebellum Florida (involving a will contest, of course) that’s evolved into a public mission for racial justice. I’m a big fan of Terry’s work, and have written about it before. Terry recently gave a TED talk that was characteristically brilliant. Highly recommended.
