There are 5 comments on Angela Onwuachi-Willig among Five Black Women Law Deans Honored for Efforts to Bring Antiracist Reform to Legal Education

  1. The BU School of Law and entire university is incredibly fortunate to have Dean Angela Onwuachi-Willig’s courageous and effective leadership. This recognition is very well-deserved!

  2. Congratulations Dean Onwuachi-Willig and BUL. Years ago, after college, I worked as a legal assistant for VISTA [Peace Corp] now known as Americorps, in the riot torn section of Washington, DC after the death of MLK, for a poverty law center named University Legal Services. I recall reading the famous book “Tally’s Corner” by Elliot Liebow. It opened my eyes to a world very different from where I grew up. I recommend both Americorps and the book. That sense of justice experience inspired me to go to law school. As MLK knew and preached, civil rights are fundamentally moral rights.

  3. Thank you for your leadership, Dean Onwuachi-Willig. As a member of the Massachusetts Bar, I appreciate that you are using your position to advance antiracism.
