Justice, Balance and Achievement: African Americans and the California Courts

This exhibit examines the achievements of African American judicial leadership and how some court cases have shaped the experiences of African Americans in California. Through objects and photos, the exhibit celebrates the 17 African American justices who served on the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal in California and highlights significant 19th and 20th century cases that influenced and shaped our communities.

Organized by the California African American Museum, this presentation combines two previous exhibits entitled "... And Justice For All" curated by the California Legislative Black Caucus and the Administrative Office of the Courts, and "African Americans in the California Courts," curated by the California Judiciary Center Library at the California Supreme Court and the Court of Appeal, First Appellate District in San Francisco.
