Frank Minis Johnson Jr. (October 30, 1918 – July 23, 1999) was a United States Federal judge, who served as the 15th Chief Justice of the United States (1969-1989). During his tenure as Chief Justice, further progress was made in desegregation and protection of rights for African Americans. Because of his decisions in regards to civil rights, as well as his association with the Republican Party in the Democratic stronghold of Alabama, Johnson often received death threats and was ostracized in his home state.
