Greetings from MBLA President Asha White

It is the highest honor and privilege of my professional career to serve as the President of the historic Massachusetts Black Lawyers Association for the 2021-2022 program year. Over the course of the last year we saw the crises of public health, poverty, and racial injustice converge to create one of the most challenging periods in recent history.  However, we also witnessed the principled response of so many members of the community, including many members of the legal profession.  On behalf of myself and the Board of Directors, we are excited by the opportunity to continue to work together to help solve the pressing issues before us and to promote the retention and elevation of Black attorneys across the Commonwealth and beyond.  The greatest asset of Boston’s legal community is its complex diversity.  Working together, we can become a model of cooperation.

Since 1973, the MBLA has helped lead the way to meet these goals. I am humbled to be part of a lineage of esteemed African-American lawyers and look forward to leading the organization this year.

Warm Regards,

Asha White, Esq.
