Join us at for a film screening and lively discussion of the life and work of the Honorable Constance Baker Motley. Judge Motley was an "invisible” activist, a change agent, and a leader, who made significant contributions to the success of the Civil Rights Movement. In addition to being the first African-American woman to be a State Senator, Manhattan Borough President, or a federal judge, Motley also wrote the original complaint for Brown v. the Board of Education, and fought for desegregation as part of the NAACP Legal Defense & Educational Fund, Inc. This film studies her role in the Movement and examines her life and career in the context of women’s agency and leadership. "Justice Is A Black Woman: The Life and Work of Constance Baker Motley" was recognized as the "Best Higher Education Film of 2012;” the "Best Documentary” at the St Tropez International Film Festival; and nominated for "Best Historical Documentary” at the National Academy Of Television Arts & Sciences.
