Summary "She is one of the true heroines of the American Civil Rights Movement. From humble beginnings in New Haven, Conn., she rose to become a champion for victims of discrimination and oppression and worked diligently to remove obstacles to education for all Americans. A brilliant lawyer, Motley played a pivotal role in numerous Civil Rights cases during the two decades following World War II. She battled in the courts of the Deep South at a time and place where racial tensions burned white hot, often putting her own life in danger for the sake of the cause. Motley led by example as a pioneer in the struggle for the rights of minorities and women. She was the first black woman to serve in the New York Senate, the first woman to be elected borough president of Manhattan, and the first black woman to serve as a federal judge. Narrated by journalist Juan Williams, Quinnipiac University's documentary, 'Justice is a Black Woman, ' is a must-see for anyone interested in learning more about this extraordinary woman and the role she played in creating a better and more just American."--Container.
