Description:

Please join us as we screen the film "Justice is a Black Woman: The Life and Work of Constance Baker Motley." The biographical film tells the story of the New Haven native and civil rights activist whose work helped lead to the desegregation of numerous schools and universities throughout the South. She also served as a state senator, a lawyer and a federal judge. Among her accomplishments was successfully arguing 10 cases before the U.S.. Supreme Court and earning an appointment to the federal bench by President Lyndon B. Johnson. Film producer Gary Ford will join us for a conversation about the film.
