January 25, 2024: AmericanStudying Groundbreaking Women: Pauli Murray and Black Women in the Law

[175 years ago Tuesday, Elizabeth Blackwell became Dr. Blackwell, the first woman to graduate from a US medical school. So this week I’ll AmericanStudy Blackwell and four other groundbreaking women from American history, leading up to a special weekend post on folks from our own moment!]

Back in March 2022, I used the occasion of Ketanji Brown Jackson’s nomination to the Supreme Court to write a piece for my Saturday Evening Post Considering History column on the amazing Pauli Murray and the long history of groundbreaking Black women and the legal profession in America. I couldn’t create this week’s series and not included them all, so in lieu of a full post today would ask you to check out that column, please!

Last groundbreaking woman tomorrow,


PS. What do you think? Other groundbreaking women, past or present, you’d highlight?
