Thank you, Valecia [Battle], for that kind introduction.  Thank you to Dean [Danielle] Holley-Walker, for welcoming us all here to Howard Law School.  And thank you to the students at the Howard Law Journal for organizing this inspiring symposium in honor of Wiley A. Branton.  From the streets of Pine Bluff, Arkansas, to the halls of Washington, D.C., Wiley Branton made equal justice not just the focus of his career but the cause of his life.  He fought fearlessly to end segregation.  He worked tirelessly to safeguard the franchise.  And he inspired countless students and scholars to engage in public service.  It is a pleasure to join so many distinguished judges, faculty and students as we come together to celebrate his legacy.  And it is an honor to do so, here, at this outstanding and historic institution.
