Justice Is a Black Woman: The Life and Work of Constance Baker Motley film screening
In celebration of Black History Month, please join the Hofstra Law Black Law Students Association (BLSA) for a screening of Justice Is a Black Woman: The Life and Work of Constance Baker Motley. The documentary is the culmination of years of dissertation research initiated by Dr. Gary Ford while working on his PhD. Ford was determined to give Judge Motley the credit she deserved for her work in the courts that affected the outcome of the civil rights movement and facilitated the dismantling of Jim Crow and a segregated society.
Following the screening, there will be panel on legal activism featuring Dr. Gary Ford, Justice Michele M. Woodard of the Nassau County Supreme Court and Professor Akilah Folami of Hofstra Law.
Refreshments will be provided.
