Courage means putting at risk your immediate self-interests for what you believe is right.

— Derrick A. Bell Jr.

Derrick A. Bell Jr. (1930-2011) was a renowned civil rights lawyer who wrote and theorized about race and racism. The first tenured Black law professor at Harvard University, Bell lived out his beliefs when he resigned from his position to protest the lack of Black women on faculty.
