Constance Baker Motley

Before becoming the first African American woman to be named a federal judge in 1966, Constance Baker Motley served in the New York State Senate and was the first woman to be elected president of the borough of Manhattan. She was a member of the Legal Defence and Educational Fund of the NAACP, was a law clerk for Thurgood Marshall, and represented Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. so that he could march in Albany, Georgia. Motley was also the person who wrote the original complaint in Brown v. Board of Education, the landmark case that led to the desegregation of the school system. She notably remarked, “I rejected the notion that my race or sex would bar my success in life.” The story of Motley’s unparalleled career is a fascinating journey through some of the most important legal decisions in US history.
