Dr. McNeil is widely known for authoring Groundwork: Charles Hamilton Houston and the Struggle for Civil Rights, recognized as the definitive biography of Charles Houston, Thurgood Marshall’s forerunner and mentor. Groundwork, upon its publication, won the American Bar Association’s Silver Gavel Award for Excellence in legal history.
Professor McNeil has served as Chairperson of the Department of History at Howard University and a visiting professor of History and Law at Howard University’s School of Law. While at Howard University School of Law where she was privileged to serve on the faculty with the inimitable J. Clay Smith, Jr., she taught jurisprudence as well as constitutional history.
Following Dr. McNeil’s remarks, WBA President Kendra Perkins Norwood and 2021 WBA Charles Hamilton Houston Medallion of Merit recipient, Donald Temple, Esq., will engage in a fireside chat with Dr. McNeil, followed by audience Q&A.
