Brown at 50

A quarter century ago, while attending a 25th anniversary celebration of Brown v. Board of Edu­cation, Constance Baker Motley was met at an Ala­bama air­port by a college student who was assigned to pick her up and take her to the event.

Now a senior U.S. district judge in New York City, Motley had been a young lawyer on the staff of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educa­tion­al Fund Inc., the group that litigated Brown.

When the student asked Motley about the conference, she re­plied, “We are celebrating the 25th anniversary of Brown.”

The student responded, “Who’s that?”
