Jane Bolin, First Black Woman Judge in the United States

In recent years, Judge Jane Bolin has gained a much higher profile, with several pieces coming out like clockwork each February — and one event that enabled this forward momentum was Commemorating Hon. Jane Bolina partnership with Yale Law School. That New York was home to the first Black woman to serve as a judge in the entire United States is notable in and of itself, but Judge Bolin’s story; her decades of selfless service; and her unsparing and frank assessment both of those institutions that failed her and the need for further progress make her a uniquely compelling figure.

Event selected by David L. Goodwin, Trustee; Supervisory Staff Attorney, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit
