The Southern Center for Human Rights gave Emanuel, author of "Elbert Parr Tuttle: Chief Jurist of the Civil Rights Revolution," its Lifetime Achievement Award. Caplan, a lawyer at Bondurant, Mixson & Elmore, was given the Gideon's Promise Award for his work in a recently settled right-to-counsel lawsuit.
