Charles Hamilton Houston was a vice dean of Howard Law School and civil rights lawyer. Among those he mentored was Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. Although he did not live to see the decision, he engineered the legal strategy that ultimately resulted in the unanimous 1954 Supreme Court decision, Brown vs. Board of Education, which overturned "separate but equal" Jim Crow segregation. The PBA Minority Bar Committee seeks to honor him by naming its newsletter "Houston's Legacy" and to continue his unfinished work.
