Judge Mablean Ephriam to Speak at NAACP Banquet

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

TV's Divorce Court Judge Mablean Ephriam is the keynote speaker at Friday night's NAACP banquet at the American Bank Center.

The judge, who oversaw divorce cases for seven years on television and appeared in several Tyler Perry movies, dropped by the Kiii-TV studios Friday morning. She said her theme at the banquet will be "we will not be moved."

"We shall not be moved from our fight for political rights for all," Ephriam said. "The Voting Rights Act, so that we can keep that in place. We shall not be moved from the fight for quality education and equal access to education for all. We shall not be moved from the fight for quality healthcare and equal access to healthcare. All the things that the NAACP has fought for."

Ephriam will be returning to TV this fall with another syndicated courtroom show called Justice with Judge Mablean.
