First African American Woman Admitted to the Supreme Court Bar


Born in London, England, Violette N. Anderson moved to the United States as a child and became interested in the law through her position as a court reporter from 1905-1920. During this time, she attended Chicago Law School, graduating in 1920. An active member of the legal community in Chicago, she passed the Illinois State Bar in 1920. Anderson said at the time, “I hope to be able to do much for the lifting of my people ... for I realize that my work is only begun.” An advocate for women’s rights and racial equality, Anderson wrote a weekly column in The Chicago Whip, “Legal Hints to Women.” A woman of many firsts, she became the first female city prosecutor serving from 1922 until 1923. On January 29, 1926, Violette N. Anderson became the first African American woman lawyer admitted to the Supreme Court Bar.
