This study seeks to examine the life and work of Charles Hamilton Houston and the scope of this project will focus on the implementation and organization of the proposed plan in three ways: philosophical ideas, constructive engagement, and lasting contributions of this legal scholar activist. When compiling scholarly articles for this volume, the challenge was examining not just legal precedents of Houston, but his contributions to the study of civic engagement, with emphasis on privilege, racism, disparity, and educational philosophy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Charles Hamilton Houston is perhaps the greatest intellectual of the twentieth century as a result of his unprecedented work on race and justice issues and Charles H. Houston: An Interdisciplinary Study of Civil Rights Leadership captures his innumerable strategies and highlights his history. Anyone seeking to learn about who killed Jim Crow must read this book! -- Charles Ogletree, Harvard University
Charles Hamilton Houston is the most important forgotten figure of the Civil Rights Movement. In the 1930s he almost singlehandedly created the infrastructure and legal strategy to fight segregation in the Courts and elsewhere. These essays provide new information about Houston's accomplishments and take us beyond his life to consider how his work endures and his strategies are useful - or no longer useful - in our own times. -- Paul Finkelman, Albany Law School
