For Your Information: the Honorable Constance Baker Motley

The nation's first black woman to serve as a federal judge died yesterday. Her incredible story is a quick, motivating, and amazing read.

ALSO NOTE: Judge Baker made a guest appearance in the litigation arising from the Buffalo Creek disaster; see her appearance (and Gerald Stern's memories of her) on page 261.
