BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY : AFRICAN AMERICAN JUDGES :THE INTEGRATION OF THE FEDRAL JUDICIARY :
The integration of African American into Federal Judiciary represents a significant achievement for social equality and the Law. As a result of the strides made by numerous pioneering African American, some descendents of slaves now serve as arbiters of a legal system that had once denied their ancestors fundamental legal rights to life, liberty, and property. One such legal pioneer was Macon B. Allen the first African American acknowledged to have gained admission to a State Bar when he passed the examination for the Maine Bar in 1844. Allen learned the law as almost all aspiring Lawyers did in this period, he read it in the office of a beneficent private Attorney while working as this Attorneys Clerks.
