February 23, 2022

In recognition of Black History Month, Sherin and Lodgen LLP is pleased to donate to the Thurgood Marshall Civil Rights Center at Howard University School of Law.

Howard University School of Law has been at the front line of the civil rights movement since it was founded in 1867. The Civil Rights Center’s namesake and Howard alumnus, Justice Thurgood Marshall was a pioneer of the U.S. Supreme Court case Brown v. Board of Education and was the first Black Supreme Court Justice. Through collaboration between law, policy, and scholarship, the Thurgood Marshall Civil Rights Center works towards the advancement of civil and human rights laws, shaping public discourse on racial equality, and providing a launchpad for activists to help ensure grassroots organizing remains prevalent in the civil rights movement.
