CIVIL RIGHTS QUEEN Constance Baker Motley and the Struggle for Equality

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Karen Chilton

Biography & Memoir • 16 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Narrator Karen Chilton channels the energy and passion of Constance Baker Motley, the first Black woman appointed to the federal court. The young Motley was the first in her family to go to college. Later, her law career unfolded seamlessly. Chilton's calm, powerful delivery captures the courageous Motley's defense of James Meredith, the first Black man to enroll in the segregated University of Mississippi after Brown v. Board of Education. Meredith had repeatedly been turned away. But Motley never wavered; she won. Through the talented Chilton, listeners learn Motley's little-known story, an iconic part of Civil Rights history from the twentieth century. E.E.S.
