Nakell remembers Dexter Brooks, a Lumbee who worked in the Save Old Main movement and who later became the first Native American to enter and graduate from the UNC law school, and became a Superior Court Judge in Robeson County. Brooks was the first of many Native Americans in Robeson County to pursue legal careers with the welfare of the county's Native American population in mind. Nakell also remembers Julian Pierce, the first director of Lumbee River Legal Services.
