Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: When it struck down racial segregation in public schools in 1954, the Supreme Court set in motion two revolutions: in black civil fights and in women's rights. One has carried black Americans into the middle class; the other has moved women from the home into the workforce. Constance Baker Motley has been a pioneer in both revolutions -- as civil fights Lawyer, New York state senator, Manhattan borough president, and federal judge -- and now she sheds new light on the great events of the 1950s and 1960s.Constance Baker joined Thurgood Marshall's legal team at the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund in 1945 while still in law school becoming one of a small group of women lawyers of the period. She was chief counsel for James Meredith in his tumultuous legal battle to be the first black to attend the University of Mississippi; she argued ten cases before the Supreme Court; and she represented other leading civil fights figures, including Martin Luther King, Jr. In 1966, she was the firstblack woman appointed to the federal bench, over a firestorm of opposition. This book, the most detailed account to date of the legal conflicts of the civil rights movement, is also an account of Constance Baker Morley's struggle, as a black woman, to succeed; it is a moving recollection of a life lived with great courage and responsibility.

Inhaltsangabe: This wise and affecting memoir is the inside story of the great efforts leading up to the Supreme Court's decision in Brown v. Board of Education in 1954 and the fight to implement it-and its implications for affirmative action and black poverty today.

A black woman who moved in the corridors of power in the middle of this century, Constance Baker Motley has been a pioneer in both black civil rights and women's rights. As the key attorney assisting Thurgood Marshall at the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, she argued a dozen cases before the Supreme Court (winning all but one), and her representation of James Meredith in his bid to enroll in the University of Mississippi made her famous. Subsequently, as Manhattan borough president and a U.S. district court judge, she has fulfilled the highest aspirations of our legal and political system.

This book, the most detailed account to date of the legal conflicts of the civil rights movement, is also an account of Motley's struggle, as a black woman, to succeed, a record of a life lived with great courage and responsibility.

Rezension: Much like the Delany sisters of Brooklyn, Constance Baker Motley was one of the first black women to overcome the barriers of race and sex to become a leading figure in her field of expertise. In the mid '60s, Motley became the first black female senator, the first black woman elected to the office of Manhattan borough president, and the first woman appointed to the federal bench. Now a senior judge in a U.S. District Court of New York, Motley looks back on a lifetime of unprecedented achievements and gives personal testimony to some of the greatest moments in the civil rights movement in her autobiography, Equal Justice Under Law. Her story is an impressive one: she dramatically recounts sitting on-stage with her son as Martin Luther King Jr. gave his "I Have a Dream" speech and recalls the traumatic times in Mississippi that led to the murder of her colleague and friend, Medgar Evers. She served on the NAACP's Legal Defense and Education Fund, fought alongside Thurgood Marshall in Brown v. Board of Education, and made 10 other appearances before the Supreme Court. Fascinating as Motley's life has been, those with some prior knowledge of civil rights may fare best with this book, considering its weighted language and complex prose--an expected caveat, considering the author has spent her life steeped in the language of law.
