Nabrit, James M., Jr.

Nabrit, James M., Jr.
▪ 1998

      American lawyer and academic who while practicing law (1930-36) in Houston, Texas, and serving as a teacher and administrator (1936-60) at Howard University, Washington, D.C., was involved in a number of important civil rights cases; he successfully argued before the U.S. Supreme Court in Bolling v. Sharpe that school segregation was unconstitutional. Nabrit later presided as dean (1958-60) of the Howard Law School before serving as president (1960-69) of Howard University at a time when the rise of "black power" created campus unrest (b. Sept. 4, 1900—d. Dec. 27, 1997).
