Black Judges on Justice is the first book to present the views of leading African American judges on the way our judicial system works. From pioneers such as Leon Higginbotham and Constance Baker Motley (the first black female federal judge) to such outspoken and well-known mavericks as Bruce Wright, the testimony of these judges provides penetrating analysis of the role of the jurist, of the daily malfunctioning of the courts, and of the future of the judicial system itself.
