William L. Taylor (1933-2010), legendary civil rights attorney and
education advocate, was known for his tireless efforts to create a public
education system that truly meets the needs of the nation's marginalized
children. He successfully litigated a number of major public school
desegregation cases in the wake of the Supreme Court's landmark decision in
Brown v. Board of Education.
Since 1982, Bill served as a vice chair of The Leadership
Conference on Civil and Human Rights, where he played a major role as a
strategist for passing legislation to extend and strengthen the Voting Rights
Act of 1965. He chaired the board of directors of The Leadership Conference
Education Fund for more than a decade. He also helped lead successful efforts to
enact the Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1988, the Civil Rights Act of 1991,
and the 1993 National Voter Registration Act.
To honor Bill Taylor's commitment to social justice, his family
established the Bill Taylor Memorial Fund at The Leadership Conference
