The loss of respected attorney Barbara
Whiting-Wright, who passed away on
November 7, had an especially strong impact
on the numerous African American women
lawyers she counseled and championed over
the last 40 years as their confidante and
mentor. Whiting-Wright, 83, was the first black
woman to serve as customs law specialist at
the U.S. Customs Service, where she began her
legal career in 1964 after graduating from
Howard University Law School as the only
woman in her class. In 1974, Whiting-Wright
cofounded and served as the first president of
the pioneering Greater Washington
Area Chapter, Women Lawyers Division,
of the National Bar Association.
