This year’s Black History Month Gala honored three figures whose careers and accomplishments are leaving an impression on both the Law School and broader New York communities. The Black Allied Law Students Association (BALSA) celebrated Zachary Carter ’75, corporation counsel of the City of New York; Kenneth Thompson ’92, Brooklyn district attorney; and Professor Paulette Caldwell, an expert on race and civil rights.

The night’s theme highlighted the racial and social concerns of 2016: “Keep the Fire Burning: Promoting Social Justice Through the Black Lives Matter Movement.”
