Charlotte E. Ray (January 13, 1850 - January 4, 1911)
Today is the birthday of Charlotte E. Ray, the first African-American female lawyer in the U.S. as well as the first female to be admitted to the Washington, DC Bar.
Ray was born in NYC and was the daughter of a Reverend. Her family was large - she was one of three sisters and seven children altogether. In 1869 she accepted a teaching post at Howard University. While there she applied (under the gender neutral name C.E. Ray) to Howard University Law School and was accepted. She graduated in 1872 and subsequently started her own practice.
Unfortunately, due to discrimination both because of her race and her gender, the practice was unable to thrive. Ray returned to NYC in 1879 and became a teacher in Brooklyn as well as an active supporter of the suffragette movement.
