Thelton E. Henderson graduated from Berkeley Law in 1962—where he was one of just 2 Black students in his class—and was the first Black attorney in the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. In the Deep South, he protected voter rights alongside everyday citizens and visionaries like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In 1980, President Jimmy Carter appointed him to the federal bench, where he has championed transformative justice for nearly four decades.

View the 57 minute film, by Bay Area filmmaker Abby Ginzberg,  followed by a panel discussion hosted by Naeemah Charles, Senior Director of GLIDE’s Center for Social Justice.  The film will screen in the sanctuary and online.
