September 3rd is the birthday of one of the most outstanding people ever to be associated with Harvard Law School— Charles Hamilton Houston of the class of 1923. Houston contributed mightily to the struggle for racial justice as a litigator, activist, and educator. He inspired, instructed, and collaborated with a bevy of remarkable attorneys, the most influential of whom was Thurgood Marshall.
In recognition of Houston’s achievements and in hopes of initiating conversation about issues with which he grappled and that remain pertinent to lawyers centrally concerned with racial fairness I am hosting a session that will meet on Thursday evening via zoom from 7 to 8:15 PM. I will give a talk about Houston’s career. The floor will then be open for questions, comments, or objections.
