Welcome from the President

It is a privilege for me to greet you as the President of the Massachusetts Black Lawyers Association for the 2019-2020 program year. I am looking forward to getting to know you better as together we build upon the legacy of those who have come before.

The MBLA has long been a home for talented Black men and women, a shelter in the struggle to use legal skill and acumen to better our community. The MBLA Board of Directors and I hope that you will join us in the struggle early and often, that you will find warmth and friendship at our events, that you will become mentors and advocates, and that you will find your professional path a little smoother as the result of our collective efforts.   Our success depends on you.
