February 6, 1990

If you had picked up The New York Times on this date, and looked at the bottom of the front page, you would have seen the following story: First Black Elected to Head Harvard's Law Review.

Then you would have probably gone on to read the "real news" of the day and forgotten all about this little story. Funny how the real news of that day is ancient history now but this little story is more timely than ever. And a week from now, well ... we'll probably be seeing yet another historic headline about this same person. Curious the fates are.
