Harlem CORE member

Description

This is a photo of Harlem CORE member, Ruth Moskowitz, as a New York State Supreme Court in Brooklyn. Her father was city councilman Julius Moskowitz.
Well known for sticking up for 'the little people' against even the most powerful including Mayor of New York Ed Koch, she became a highly respected Legal Aid attorney and sitting judge, a career directly influenced by her time in CORE. Apparently, she was so well thought of as a judge she was re-elected to the position days after she had passed.
