The Davis-Dunnings Bar Association (DDBA) (formerly known as the Lansing Black Lawyers Association) was founded in 1981. Leading the initial formation were the Honorable Clinton Canady III and the Honorable Hugh B. Clarke, Jr., who along with several other African-American attorneys in the Lansing area adopted the Association’s initial bylaws. The DDBA was formally incorporated in 1983. The DDBA is considered a Special Purpose Bar Association by the State Bar of Michigan. It was formed to provide support to African-American attorneys in Mid-Michigan by providing them networking and professional development opportunities. At the time the DDBA was formed, it was the only local bar association outside of Detroit formed to address the needs of African American attorneys.
