Gloria J. Browne-Marshall is a civil rights attorney who has litigated cases for the Southern Poverty Law Center and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. She’s also an author, playwright, and Professor of Constitutional Law at John Jay College (CUNY). Her newest book, She Took Justice: The Black Woman, Law, and Power – 1619 to 1969 (2020), recounts three centuries of courageous actions taken by Black women in the face of racial prejudice and gender oppression, from Queen Nzinga of Ndongo and Matamba (1583-1663) to U.S. Congresswoman and Presidential candidate Shirley Chisholm (1924-2005). Historian Blanche Wiesen Cook said, “Vividly written and profoundly researched…. This timely and riveting book is urgently needed, now!”
Browne-Marshall will be in conversation with Henry M. Greenberg, shareholder at Greenberg, Traurig, past president of the New York State Bar Association and chair of the Commission to Reimagine the Future of New York's Courts.
