Constance Baker Motley: A Woman's Fight For Civil Rights
This hour: As Black History Month draws to a close, we draw attention to a Connecticut native who was integral in the campaign for civil rights -- Judge Constance Baker Motley.
Coming up, we take an in-depth look at Judge Motley's life and talk about her legacy both inside and outside of the courtroom.
Plus: Suzan-Lori Parks’ Father Comes Home From the Wars Parts 1, 2 & 3 opens at Yale Repertory Theatre next month.
We learn more about the production and find out how the Theatre’s ongoing WILL POWER! initiative is exposing students to the arts.
