Dr. Mary Frances Berry is the Geraldine R. Segal Professor of American
Social Thought at the University of Pennsylvania where she teaches
history and law. In 1980, she was appointed by President Carter and
confirmed by the Senate as a Commissioner on the U.S. Commission on
Civil Rights. After President Reagan fired her for criticizing his civil
rights policies, she sued him and won reinstatement in federal district
court. In 1993, President Clinton designated her Chairperson of the
Civil Rights Commission. She was re-appointed in January 1999, and
served until December 2004. Dr. Berry will share her reflections on her
tenure at the Commission.
