Gratitude for Margaret Burnham’s Decades of Service

by | Mar 29, 2024

Margaret Burnham, a distinguished figure renowned globally for her expertise in civil and human rights, has served as clerk of the AP Board of Directors for decades. Following Bob’s passing, she helped ensure a seamless transition of leadership. With an illustrious career spanning civil rights advocacy as a lawyer, academic contributions as a professor at Northeastern University, and an appointment by President Biden to the Civil Rights Cold Case Records Review Board, Margaret has decided, in light of the Algebra Project’s assured stability, to step down from her position. This decision allowed her to redirect her focus to her other endeavors, including touring for her latest critically acclaimed book, “By Hands Now Known: Jim Crow’s Legal Executioners.”
