Equal Opportunity Schools: Celebrating Charles Hamilton Houston

Equal Opportunity Schools is celebrating Black History Month by recognizing inspirational Black leaders. Charles Hamilton Houston taught at Howard University, became a lawyer, and the first African American editor of the Harvard Law Review.

In 1929, Houston joined Howard Law School’s faculty, mentored Thurgood Marshall, and played a role in nearly every civil rights case before the Supreme Court (1930-1954). The Charles Hamilton Houston Hall (Howard University School of Law) and the Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice (Harvard Law School) are named for him.

She started her career as a teacher before founding Bethune-Cookman College, which provided a place for African American students to pursue a college degree and set the educational standards for today’s black colleges.
